THE BRIDGE MEETING

Having a Bad Hair Day? Running late for you appointment? Or maybe running early for an assignation?! So was this fellow...

My reaction was "Oh my Gawd!"

Iain's was "M-m-m-m ... the bridge stood up well!"
(It appears to be a lifting bridge.)

Later:
John over at Clydesights here (or click on it in the right-hand side bar) contacted me to say that the story of this incident can be read here. It took place in the Welland Canal (Canada) and appears that the pilot on the boat thought he was doing fine until the bridge, instead of continuing its lift, went into reverse. (Well, any driver of species-not-to-be-named knows that these things can happen....!)
