Anyway, my thoughts are with the family and loved ones of the one lost today to this ignorance.

Good thoughts to all involved in the I-4 70 vehicle pileup today. This happened this morning at about 5am due to smoke and fog. This particular part of I-4 is low lying and tends to have issues with fog anyway, but this morning due to a "controlled" burn which was not control 4 people have lost there lives. Why didn't they close that portion of the highway? This is what I want to know. visibility was only about 10 feet. Why didn't Florida Highway Patrol think it was necessary last night to close this portion of the highway. Well, I am thinking we need to rethink there ability to make good decisions. And whose idea was it to do a controlled burn when it is so dry around here, and so windy. I am no scientist, but I would think it would be best to do these things in the rainy season so that when they do get out of control there will be a little help from nature. Just saying!
