Luckily, there was no one underneath. We were told by the work crew, "Oh, sure, should be cleared by this afternoon." Uh, yeah, OK.
Of course, everyone had to watch and give their opinion about how this should be handled.
Our fellowmen here have absolutely no respect for waiting in line. So what did we do? That's right, we snuck up a half-mile into a slot left empty by someone who gave up and turned around. Elder Fawson (left) said, "Now I really feel like a Peruvian."
There are many times when one encounters delays on the roadways here, for accidents, road repairs, falling boulders, no good reason, etc. However, it is a BAD SIGN for the probable length of the wait if the snack sellers show up. Unfortunately, they were there in force, appearing from nowhere.
We hope the snack ladies don't show up next time you have to stop on the highway.
