The rising sun glared into my eyes on this morning's commute so at times I had a battle seeing super well. A few cars ahead of me I saw something. Movement. Nobody behind me so I braked a bit. Just in case dogs had wandered onto the road. The movement happened again and my mind said: That is not the way an animal moves! Tumbleweed?? I drove further and figured it out. A pickup truck had a load of unsecured pumpkins in its bed. Large cardboards boxes loaded to the gunnels with green and orange pumpkins of all sizes. Three or four tumbled and rolled out onto the road before the driver turned onto the highway. I found the tumbling pumpkins rather amusing but like hubby said, not a great thing to plow into.

That could have caused a lot of accidents. I wouldn't want to hit one! I remember one day last year I was walking by the grocery store and they had all their pumpkins in a huge cardboard box in front of the store. Just as I walked by the side let go on the box and all the pumpkins went rolling through the parking lot. Luckily I had time to get out of the way but I seen a few of them hit people's cars.

@Happy2BeMe Seeing those pumpkins tumble out of the box must have been something. I'm glad you are okay. Big pumpkins cost 5 dollars here so losing them is a costly mess.

@sallypup Yes I am sure it was. They had their staff running around collecting pumpkins but I am sure they lost quite a few.

Yeah, you wouldn't want one of those to fly out and hit your car. I've always found it strange that people hauling stuff never think to keep an eye on the stuff they are hauling. Even if what I'm hauling is tied down I still keep an eye on it.

I agree with you. I've towed a small trailer and been nervous until I safely got home.
