It was a rough weekend on the waters just north of Buffalo for two large ships.

The Welland Canal is only a little more than a half an hour away from the City of Buffalo in Ontario Canada.

If you have ever driven to Toronto from Buffalo, New York, there is a good chance you have either driver over or near the Welland Canal. The sound that the two ships make when they collide is something like you probably have never heard before and likely won't soon forget. I think the first question that just about anyone who is not involved in this accident is "how can that happen?" It also reminds me that when I think I am having a bad day at work, it could always be worse!
