The rain is pounding down outside this morning as I sit looking out my livingroom window with tablet and coffee in hand. I'm warm and dry enjoying the idea that being retired means I am no longer on the highway investigating collisions in this weather. Of course, Murphy was listening.
The tones of a radio page to the Nanoose Bay Volunteer Fire Department warbles from the tablet courtesy of the internet. There's a four vehicle crash somewhere on Highway 19 between Summerset Road and Hillview Road. That's not too bad as there are only about 3 kilometers between those locations for emergency services to search. Sometimes the reports are so inaccurate that multiple fire departments and paramedic stations must be called to insure that the scene is found quickly.
