Thanksgiving--playing on the freeway

Our move to San Marcos on November 28 to start our new job was supposed to be quick. We had a small U-Haul and friends to help us load and unload. But the 30 minute trip ground to a quick halt immediately after getting on the I-15 freeway.

We learned there was a bomb threat from a car parked under the overpass you can just make out in my cell phone photo above.

We sat for 2 and 1/2 hours on the freeway. Many people got out of their cars. As there was no traffic from the other direction some played catch with a football while others did hand stands and cartwheels in the empty lanes. Actually, I didn't see anyone overly upset. I used the time to rest. I wish to thank the Dunn's for helping us to move and sitting with us on the freeway and not complaining (out loud, at least).

Here is a news report about the bomb hoax.

If you are in any doubt, no, it is not a good idea to stick a cardboard box in the back of your sister's car with the word "bomb" written on it. Go directly to jail, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.
