a little large for warren avenue

Chester County Ramblings - Fri, 2015-06-19 11:31

There I was sitting at the light at Warren Avenue in Malvern with other people waiting for the light to change , and this giant truck hauling a pre-fabricated structure as big as a one story house steamrolled up and started to turn the corner. Fortunately I was able to back up. But it was a little scary this truck was SO big.

I have no idea where it was going, but wow if it had to turn on King Street or go over the railroad bridge in the heart of the borough, I bet that was interesting.

Oh and the driver of this truck from North Carolina seemed really irritated he had to deal with the local flora and fauna. All we were doing was sitting at the traffic light….
