David Macom presents ‘Frosty the fly-ash man’

Updated Nov 9, 2018

Or, perhaps, “The ghostly majesty of a cloud of fly ash,” just in time for Halloween. Or: “Don’t try this at home, folks.”

Or as reader David Macom, who shared this particular video from his dashcam, noted, “This is what happens when the shop mechanic runs out of band clamps for your bulk tanker.”

As Macom slowly approaches the terminal where a previously arriving driver was unloading, the use of a single clamp on the main four-inch hose feeding product from a tanker into the facility proved, well, ineffective. To see what it looks like when the hose comes off and ash does what it does best and flies, check out the video above.
