Is it just gonna stay there forever?

We all remember where we were when we found out there was a truck on a sandbar in the Ohio River. I was on top of our parking garage when my co-worker Melissa said "Hey, there's a truck on that sandbar in the middle of the Ohio River." It was riveting. Upon this discovery, people started searching for answers. One news outlet even tracked down the owner of the truck. It was the story that we deserved.


Don't get me wrong, it's not hurting anyone, it's just kind of weird. The novelty has worn off. It's gone from my previous reaction of "Hey, there's a truck on that sandbar in the middle of the Ohio River," to "They ever gonna move that truck?" We also run the risk of getting burned again if another attempt at moving it happens. I can only be hurt so many times with my dream of seeing a truck float across a body of water and having it not happen. Do we need to come together as a city and make a bridge for it to cross? Let us know how we can help get this truck back to dry land.

To be honest, I'm surprised it's still there; with as temperamental as the parking enforcement people are in downtown Evansville, I'm surprised they haven't attempted to tow it!
