In Pennsylvania a raccoon was run over by a road painting crew, getting painted over in the process. Since the crews needed to go back out to clean up the mess and then will need to go back out to correct the gaps in the paint job the accident caused, I guess this little critter got the last laugh.
In other news, a hydroelectric power plant on Raccoon Mountain–which I took a tour of back in 2005–near Chattanooga, TN, has been shut down. It’s due to cracked rotors or something. I dunno’. I was just happy to see Raccoon Mountain in the news.
