Brought to you (unintentionally) by the glass company.

About five minutes ago I heard a giant crash from outside. Turns out a glass truck that was making a sharp right turn here lost a giant plate of glass in the process.

Within a few minutes we had a cop blocking the right lane to minimize flat tires, and now the glass company has returned with a giant broom and is sweeping it all off the street. Nice distraction from work for a little bit, and it probably only cost the glass company a few hundred bucks! Oh, and the cop is kind of hot.

ETA at 1:36 p.m.: Three guys came back to pick the glass out of the gutter, and the city of Durham even dispatched a street sweeper to finish up the job. Isn't the public works department fancy.
