Germany or Florida? ANSWERED

Postby sox 06 » Sun Aug 12, 2007 7:47 pm

I already gave this a try a few months back, and well I stunk it up. But I'm bored so I thought I would try it again. It's not the best story, but as I said, I'm really bored right now :-b

Bat triggers alarm and closes tunnel

A bat set off a fire alarm in a highway tunnel early Friday, forcing an hour-long closure and causing long delays, police said.

Police said the animal apparently landed on a smoke detector or a pipe in the tunnel - triggering a fire alarm, which automatically led to the tunnel being closed in both directions at about 4:45 a.m.

Police and fire officers searched the tunnel and surveillance camera footage for signs of a blaze, but to no avail.

After about an hour, the tunnel was reopened.

A tailback of about 800 yards built up in one direction, while cars queued for more than a mile at the tunnel's other entrance.

Are there highway tunnels in Florida? I may be ignorant, but I think the odds would be to Germany for this one.

If there are highway tunnels in Florida then this is a pretty good GoF. If there aren't, it was too easy.

I went with Germany. ;-D

This is tough.

A tailback of about 800 yards built up in one direction, while cars queued for more than a mile at the tunnel's other entrance.


The bold words make me think Germany while "miles" makes me think Florida. I'm gonna go with Germany.

The story was most likely written or translated by an English newspaper - hence the use of the word "queued." It would also explain the use of the word "yards" but not necessarily "mile." I'm assuming "tailback" is a colloquialism.
