Ah, that takes me back. I remember driving across Grand Island on my way back from just having voted in the 2008 presidential elections. On the opposite side of the thruway, off in the distance, you could see smoke billowing. As I got closer, you could see that it was a garbage truck also, parked on the shoulder, fully engulfed. This thing was really cooking. The fire department hadn't even arrived yet. As I went by, you could see them rapidly approaching, coming up behind the burning truck.
