I saw something strange looking on I-85 north of union city against the inside median wall.Small, but nothing I had seen prior.This was about the time I saw it.2 weeks ago.There is a cement barrier wall protecting the north and south bound lanes in that area, and whatever this was , was laying up against the cement wall on the north bound side.

We developed a leak in the roof of the factory where I worked, and when I went up on the roof to investigate I found a strance looking object with a pointy bottom sticking up in the roof: it turned out to be the payload/instruments for a weather baloon, the antenna poking thru the roof and causing the leak.
There's an old joke, from the days when USDA banded birds, man wrote in: "I shot your duck, I wash-ed it, I biol-ed it I surv-ed it like the tag said, but it warn't much good, too old and tough.
