    California buffeted by strong offshore winds

    Passed by two overturned tractor trailers heading north on I-15 a couple hours ago near exit 119.

    First one I saw was lying on its side along the shoulder on the southbound lanes. Wheels were toward the number three lane.

    Second truck I saw was also on the shoulder with its wheels towards the interstate.

    What I find strange is both of these trucks would have had to have been blown over by winds coming from opposite directions; the southbound truck being blown over by an easterly wind, and the northbound truck blown over by a westerly wind.

    Unless these trucks were moved by a wrecker after having been blown over, I am without explanation. :scratch:

    Politicians did it it. When ever they talk it is always a great blow.

    Dont believe that one?

    Ok Aliens did it.

    More than likely drowsy drivers rolled their own trucks.

    what I have notice is that the wreckers will pull a rig to the shoulder and come back later when winds die down to get it back on it's wheels
