on Monday on the way to work I was behind a F350 and getting all kinds of whitewash from him not clearing the snow off his roof....like a white out..
Anyway, I backed off and was waiting for the sheet of snow to come flying at me when the unexpected happened....

The large chrome tailpipe end fell off his truck, hit the pavement and started flying end over end right at my windshield...
I managed to slide over enough to miss the flying pipe and avoid the dividing center wall on the left lane, but only with a few inches to spare on either side.

Be aware and be careful out there.
