And The RV Saga Continues...

I think, by now, it's safe to assume that you all know that I live in an RV, in an RV park that is full of methheads and such. We've had some drama the last couple of days....
The methhead has been out in his car full-force the last couple of days. Vacuuming, re-organizing, whatever it is that he does. And he does it until the sun comes up. I find it interesting that when the sheriff's office came over to his place, he wasn't there and after the sheriff left, he came back and has been holed up ever since.
It's 3:30 am and I was abruptly awoken an hour ago to the sound of my coughing and wheezing...dog hair...doesn't matter how much you clean it, it's there...so I turned on the TV with every intention of going back to sleep. Bob rolled over and asked what was wrong, so I told him I needed the inhaler and about the time I did that, we heard SCREECH! and the BOOM! Holy Cat!
When we first moved in here I heard tale of people driving off the enbankment, but I never gave it much thought. I have lived here just over a year and nothing. Not that I wanted to see or hear anything like that! Bob said to go back to bed, I said NO WAY and with jacket and shoes on, I went out the door.
I'm sorry I did...this was a really bad wreck and I know there were two people in it and I know one was hurt pretty bad and had hit his/her face on the windshield. What left me in disbelief is how someone didn't get killed! I didn't go all the way down to the end of the park...there were sheriffs, ambulance and a fire truck. They didn't need me in the way snapping pictures, but I have to LOL because I had slipped the old camera into my pocket. I think these 2 people were actually pretty lucky. If their car had gone off the other side of the road, chances are, they would have been dead. That side of the road where this happened goes right into the Columbia River...and we had a drowning right in that spot last summer. That was sad.
I'm going to make an assumption here and go out on a limb and say the driver of the car was drinking and driving too fast and failed to negotiate the turn. That left 2 choices: 1. The river, where you don't want to be, or 2. take the car over the embankment. The driver, apparently, chose the latter. The huge boom I heard was the car, after it flipped 2 or 3 times, hitting the concrete foundation that was poured down there...for what, I don't know. The car actually rolled and must have went end to end, because after the ambulance, fire truck and sheriffs left, I went down to take a peek. It was facing back my way when originally it was going the other. SCARY!
Anyway...that was my night...and this was dinner last night!
Parmesan Sesame Chicken
Savory Lemon Limas
Restaurant-Style Coleslaw II
Cheddar Bay Biscuits
This is the embankment that the car rolled down..it's dark out here and you can't see.
