Day 313 – I Hear the Train a Comin’
As much as I want to post another flower photo today, I’m going to do something different. 🙂
We had some hellacious storms roll through the N KY last night. Thankfully we did not have any damage here, but a town very close to us had some severe damage. When I got to work this morning, we had no electricity. We sat around until 11:30 when my boss told my department we could go home.
I drove around looking for something to photograph, and decided to stop at the Erlanger Depot to see what was going on there. I have no idea what the correct railroad lingo is, (I learned a lot about trains from watching “Unstoppable,” but apparently my brain did not retain any of it) but there was an engine that was pushing several cars down the track a few hundred feet and then pulling them back to where he started. I was quite amused with this because to an “outsider,” it appeared that the engineer just couldn’t make up his mind what he wanted to do. So I watched that for a few minutes and was just about to leave when I heard a train whistle in the distance. Why yes, Folsom Prison Blues did start playing in my head. How’d you know? 🙂
