Succinctly Yours Week 14

Grandma's Goulash at Succinctly Yours Succinctly Yourshosts this microfiction meme. 

Each week she posts a photographic prompt for inspiration and the challenge is to write a story using no more than 140 characters or words.

Below is this week's photo followed by my offering.

It was a tribute to the police that the traffic was able to keep moving on that wet and windy day and that there were no accidents.

(131 characters and very lame!)

  9. It was also a tribute to those drivers! You get extra credit for your use of "tribute." I laughed a lot at your parenthetical remarks.

  12. I always feel sorry for the police who have to direct traffic in the rain. Not much of a "Kojak" moment for them. . .they do often prevent accidents, though!

  13. Well said in less than 140 characters. For sure, driving in that sort of weather can be very scary!

  14. I'm not a fan of driving in that kind of weather. It's the other drivers that scare me!

  16. The police surely benefit from that. I wouldn't want to be getting out of a patrol car after there's been a rainy day accident. Thoughtful mf.
