EVERYONE heard that one on the Grapevine.

A tanker carrying jet fuel exploded on I-5 today near the grapevine and the driver lived to tell about it! The trucker claims his brakes went out and since there isn’t anything left of the tanker, we’re all just going to have to take his word for it. (I cannot think of a better time to crap your pants than racing down the grapevine with no brakes while sitting a top of a tanker full of jet fuel.)

The accident happened at 10 o’clock this morning and the northbound lanes are expected to be closed until at least 4:00 p.m. today. (I hope all those people who moved here from LA are starting to regret it now.)
