Megaload still stuck, cradle scarapes rock face

Either the Lewis or the Clark, names given by Conoco/Phillips to the two first pioneering megaloads, is, much like the original duo, stuck along Highway 12 waiting for the snow to melt. This is the second day the loads have made no progress, and comes after an auspicious second leg of their journey. News agencies report that the first load out of the gates has to date caused more than ten delays of longer than 10 minutes, five delays longer than 29 minutes, one delay of almost an hour, and if that isn’t enough the cradle holding the half-drum HIT A ROCK FACE!!! Not a good showing, sir.

    We told ’em so! The ID DOT guy sounded kinda sheepish when he casually mention the delay.

    I’m confused. Why are we making such a big stink about these loads? Highway delays? We have huge highway delays every construction season. I’ve been seeing news tidbits about these big loads, but I still haven’t seen anything that tells me why they are such a big problem.
