Petaluma follies

2008-06-04 21:31:13.411582+00 by Dan Lyke 7 comments

Oh dear. Please tell me this happened on the east (other) side of the freeway: Petaluma man hurts daughter while chasing her boyfriend (that he didn't like) with a machete. Yesterday it was cows on the freeway. Suddenly this place feels pretty... uh... small town rural.

You're not THAT rural. True to the nature of Californians - three of the cows were struck by cars! Unlike deer and other things commonly hit by rural drivers, cows don't just jump out in front of you. They also don't blend into their surroundings.

Well, they were probably black and white cows, and asphalt is black and the stripes on the side of the road are white...

Whew, that's a load off my mind: SFGate says it was 1100 St. Anthony Way, which is over there in east Petaluma.

You know you live in a rural area when you have to help a neighbor bury his horse.

If you think that's silly, this sign is by my house. As bad as it may seem striking a cow with your car, being bombed by cows leaping from cliffs sounds infinitely worse.

Heh. That's either a mighty big car or a mighty small cow.
