  • Traffic was stopped for a while, the ambulance came, and after they let us through we saw a fire truck coming from the Blue Lake area. The car was a real mess and since no one was seriously hurt there must not have been anyone in the back seat cause that’s where the damage was worst.

  • Would have been easier to just buy a convertible.

  • Yesterday traveling the 299 towards arcata we got to witness road rage. It is a real thing and is scary. A woman in a blue small hatch back came flying by us with a white dodge on her ass she refused to get over and let him pass then proceeded to get in front of everyone put on her flashers and drive 35 mph. Next passing lane comes up and she speeds up again last we saw the dodge was chasing her down. Driving is not a game pay attention and be considerate.
