It was midnight and pouring cats and dogs. My partner and I responded to a felled tree on a major boulevard. This tree had fallen across all the west-bound lanes so we quickly turned one of the east-bound lanes into a westbound with traffic cones. Everything went smoothly, except that we were a little cranky from the continuous soaking we received. After about an hour of directing traffic, a woman slowed down and cracked her window and asked me, "Excuse me, officer, what happened here?" I turned and looked at the huge tree that had obviously fallen onto the roadway, no doubt due to the loosened soil and replied, "Ma'am, a UFO crash landed here, I'm gonna have to ask you to move on." She replied, "REALLY???" People on the west-side are so gullible.
