It took an hour and a half longer to get to California

And a few people aren't going to get there at all.

Just south of Brookings, Oregon, traffic on Highway 101 came to a standstill. Put-it-in-park-and-shut-off-the-engine standstill. Go-stand-in-the-road-and-try-to-see-what's-going-on standstill.

There had been a bad accident just across the state line. As near as I could figure out as I eventually crept past, a southbound pickup had slowed or stopped to make a turn. The driver of a big Class A RV behind him wasn't paying attention, swerved to the right in an attempt to miss him or minimize the impact, but hit the back corner of the truck, ripping the passenger side off and buckling the pickup in the middle. Then a second big Class A RV slammed into the first one.

This is one reason I hate huge RVs.
