Tues, 1/28 @ 10:29AM – spinout. As I approach Shades Mountain Baptist Church, I notice a Vestavia Hills police officer blocking off the Canyon Rd rollercoaster. At the church, there is a huge line of people trying to pick up kids from preschool. A minute or two later as I approach the cars in this picture, they aren’t moving. The jeep then pulls around the Mercedes convertible, who is spinning his tires and going nowhere. At this point, I realize that there is a problem and things are probably going to get worse. I’m still worried about being on time to class because Samford has not cancelled classes. I take this picture and one more while riding past the Mercedes.
