Cows From Heaven?

I meant to comment on this incident a couple of days ago, but forgot at the time. 

Charles and Linda Everson were driving back to their hotel when their minivan was struck by a falling object – a 600-pound cow. The Eversons were unhurt but the cow, which had fallen off a cliff, had to be euthanized.

The year-old cow fell about 200 feet from the cliff and landed on the hood of the couple’s minivan, causing heavy damage.

A Chelan County fire chief, Arnold Baker, said the couple missed being killed by a matter of inches in the accident Sunday on a highway near Manson.

Can you imagine?  You’re just driving along, minding your own business and suddenly BLAM there’s a cow on the hood of your car.

It doesn’t matter how defensively you drive, I don’t know that there’s any way to prepare for this sort of eventuality.  Sometimes the universe is simply perverse.
