In the Spaghetti

When it happened, I was living in a condo in Houston, Texas.
The condo was a mile or so away from a large freeway intersection called the “Spaghetti Bowl.”
One afternoon a truck pulling a tank of ammonia had gone off one of the highest overpasses and exploded.
The result was a large cloud of ammonia drifting our way.
This was un-known to me until the maintenance man, a very small and very old black man knocked on the door.
He said, “The office told me to come down here and tell you guys that an ammonia truck fell off the freeway and now we have to evaporate the area.”
