We were about to run out of cheese, so Kris and I jumped in the truck for a quick drive to Boise to pick up some. We had planned on being back fairly quickly.
Not so fast….
We called work and let them know that a vehicle had caught on fire and we had no way out.
You could hear the sarcasm in return, “Mmmm hmmm. A fire? All lanes are blocked, eh?”
Yes, we’re normally late because we can’t help but go shopping, but this was legit!

While we were complaining about the traffic, this poor guy lost everything he owned. He said later that he had all of his possessions in the truck, and was trailing his boat and jet ski. He and his dog survived, but now have nothing. Makes you realize how fortunate you are when you hear of things like this.
We were pretty late to work, and had only one half pan of mozzarella left when we showed up, but it all worked out for us in the end.
