Pix of the Day: Topless in Hurricane
Topless in Hurricane © Ian Scott-Parker
This old buggy stands in the Heritage Park in Hurricane, Utah. The tale goes that when Erastus Snow arrived to check out the area for settlement, a sudden wind blew the top off his buggy. This seems a more likely tale than the version that mentions his top hat blowing away. Reportedly he said, "That thar sure was some hurricane!", which was a mild retort under the circumstances, and the name stuck. I doubt if this was the same buggy, and the story seems a bit unlikely, but its a gift for those people who write the teaser boards outside news agents' shops, hahaha! No need for you to feel cheated though, Monday's entry has a sultry seductress who will link you to a whole gallery of naughty delights from old time New Orleans.
