I'm guessing no one is going to snicker about this one.

That's a real dangerous curve that immediately turns into one lane. I work for the state and we have put up signs and flashing beacons but people still go to fast.

I am so glad that I didn't have to go into work today. Also, that my commute does not go that direction.

I thought the headline meant Evan Dando and John Rzeznik were forming a supergroup.

Aww, I was gonna make joke about that. I'm too damn slow today.

Fun fact: I-990 is the highest numbered route in the Interstate Highway System.

It's also one of the shortest, running only about 6 miles and entirely contained within the borders of a single town.

I believe my roomate had a cassette tape of the lemmonhead and would play that song I hate algebra all the time.

I guess that whole 'leader of vegetarian cannibals' thing wasn't working out for him.

am really disappointed that the truck driver was not a former member of the Lemonheads, and the "Goo Goo" was just to strengthen the reference to mediocre 90s music.
 
2013-09-11 08:42:29 PM
Boy am I old! I thought of lemonhead candy and goo goo clusters, not music groups.
 
2013-09-11 08:51:13 PM
How could subby not work Buffalo Tom into the headline? They're even from the same city as the Lemonheads...

Eh, It's got nothing on the exit from the 33 to the 198.

My BIL was the super on the bridge construction.

That curve is awesome. I take it at about 65. And no, it doesn't turn immediately to one lane; the two lane section continues almost to the 290 merge.

True dat. Nothing like granite retaining walls.

FTW.

Grew up in S. Ontario and governed by WIVB - Tonawanda seemed plagued by fire.

I gre up in the Buffalo area, but I never figured out why Canadians seem to think that everything in Buffalo is on fire.  I've heard that remark about fires so many times, and its always from Canadians.

I don't believe Buffalo has more fires than any other city.

Not everything in Buffalo, just North Tonawanda. I swear WIVB just used stock footage ...

There was a rash of arsons / "suspicious fires" in North Buffalo a few years ago IIRC, lots of vacant hundred-year-old homes that a mislaid crack pipe can light up quickly...Tonawanda just looks like it's on fire all the time because of Huntley and Tonawanda Coke...
