A while ago I was in Downtown Summerlin capturing some scenes, there were far more people there than I expected, add to that the crazy weather today. I’m so glad that I headed home when I did! Heading northbound on the two-fifteen freeway, my truck was taking a pounding from the powerful winds both head-on and from the sides at sixty-five miles per hour.
When leaving Summerlin, I could see the very dark line of storm clouds directly north of me. By the time I was at Lake Mead Boulevard, the powerful winds were upon me, throwing fine sand and human debris at the front of my truck, I also heard what sounded like a small stone that hit the lower-left area of the windscreen. Gladly, it didn’t crack, the rest of the truck was OK.
I felt very relieved when pulling into the garage and closing the bay door directly behind me. I grabbed a clean bath towel and wiped the entire truck down, removing the tiny bit of rain that was on the glass and body, I made it haha! Of course, the Nikon was ready to roll at arm’s length so I grabbed a few quick photos, the other photos can wait.
The photo of the accident was taken by just turning the camera backward and taking the shot. Got it. Apparently, the wind and dust were enough to distract one or both of the drivers. Someone’s insurance bill is gonna take a hit! Funny thing, as I passed the Metro Police car, the officer had the appearance of surfing his device. Probably not, haha.
