On the freeway, it takes up three lanes on the straightaways and all
four lanes on curves and bridges. It took us 90 minutes to go about
20 miles.

I passed a rig maybe half that size once heading east towards Snoqualmie Pass.
The trailer had maybe 12 axles and was pulled by only 2 tractors. I guessed the
load was an electric generator for one of the hydro plants on the Columbia.

Holy crap! What about on and off the freeway? Around here
freeway entrances/exits are only 2 lanes wide at most
and usually 1 lane with shoulders.

Some are tall enough. the ones that aren't they go around, sometimes
up and down the ramps, sometimes by miles.

At least it wasn't this bad --

"The semi was carrying 72,000 pound of tomatoes, the CHP said."

This is especially funny because a lot of the conversation on the trip
north this weekend was about all the trucks full of tomatoes, tomatoes
on the side of the freeway, the "world's largest"* tomato processing
plant, etc.

*I made up the part about "world's largest", but tomato trucks seem to
be going in there 24/7.

Yuck. I HATE raw tomatoes. I'm ok with sauces, sundried I actually
like, but raw tomatoes are to me utterly vile. The sandwich guy in
the cafeteria at work is well-trained by now not to put them on my
sandwich.

A fire in a bourbon barrel-house, now *that's* sad.

I can sit with a bowl of cherry tomatoes fresh out of the garden and
eat them like candies.
