Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Okay--one more thing before the boring stuff. Alabama Travel Tip #34

You don't have to leave your vehicle in the way of traffic if you have a wreck. If you and the vehicle are both operational, you're supposed to move it to the side of the road to await the arrival of the police. I say this purely for the selfish motive that my normal 22.3 minute morning commute was ruined by two folks who had a minor fender-bender in the left lane, right past the Tallapoosa Street exit. Nice huge flat emergency lane there, but they just stood there, arms akimbo, looking back over two miles of bumper-to-bumper traffic.

I know for those of us who had it drummed into us to NOT MOVE YOUR CAR in case of an accident that this sounds like pure heresy, but really, it's okay and is intended to cut down on the congestion and further danger posed by vehicles in the travel lanes. If it can move, move it.

And keep me from being late to work.
