C Tann-Starr's Outside Blog


My "duh" moment for today...

I need a FL cell phone for vacation. Truck flips over, I speed dial 911 and get New York. My "duh" moment for today (LOL). Being a blogger, of course I had to run and fetch my camera... Will post Christmas pictures later. ;-)

Wow......how did that happen I wonder!  Crazy to see a truck hauler like that turned over!

Larry, the wind has been off the hook down here. I was on US1 beach hopping looking for some eye candy when I decided to cut over on Malabar to hook up on 192 so I could wander around Melbourne. Next thing I know the truck ahead of me is tipping over. Talk about holy cow moment... By the time I found a spot to turn around lights and sirens were everywhere.

Hi C...

Cool video though. That is an interesting warning about pre-loaded cell phones and 911 service.

C, very good point, not so good accident!

I hope no one was seriously injured. The wind can do wicked things...

I am so glad you are safe.  (Re trace your steps and I bet you will find and irritating something that put you a few minutes behind)

Kathleen, I have been kissing my kids excessively. It was a spur of the moment backtrack to our house to unload the car that set me back several minutes. I ran in dumped the bags and ran out. Never gave it a second thought until you posted your comment. I am always telling Mikey I need to be in by Sundown or he has to drive because I know very little about FL if it isn't a vacation question (LOL).

Debbie, I saw someone climb out of the passenger side. I was relieved to see him sitting on top of the cab of the truck.

Bill, Googling that. ;-)

Evelyn, it's been interesting. It snatched the door handle right out of my hand and I drifted a bit in the parking lot. There are palm branches down in my front yard and a planter tipped over in the back yard.

Andrea, I'm thinking a pre-pay would be handy if I'm doing to be hanging out in another state for a significant bit of time. 

Richard, I keep thinking I need to make a master list of out of state emergency numbers for where we hang out. Might come in handy. :-)

I thought that "911" was a local number wherever you were.

Posted by Jesse Skolkin (Independent New York State Certified Real Estate Appraiser) almost 10 years ago

Jesse, it turns out 911 is based upon the area code of your cellphone. :-)

Posted by C Tann-Starr (Tann Starr & Associates, Inc.) almost 10 years ago

What a scarry experience! Is it possible to dial the area code first to get the appropriate 911?

Robin, I have never tried. Hmm...
