Hat tip to an alert Twitter follower who passed this along to me this evening.
I tried to dig out the original tweet from the Washington State Department of Transportation but I got frustrated. You’ll just have to follow the link to the sorry looking Christmas tree abandoned in the middle of the interstate after presumably slipping off the roof of a car.
The tweet comes to me at a good time. Earlier today, my wife made fun of my rooftop tree-tying skills in her latest post for “The Mommyhood” blog published by our hometown newspaper, The Charleston Daily Mail.
You can find a link to her post in the previous entry.
Suffice it to say, the above tweet shows why it pays to be meticulous when securing a Christmas tree to the roof of your car.
