This is just one of those stories you have to sit back and read to believe. But yes, on Monday morning, according to WFAA, a truck carrying over 30,000 eggs crashed.
The crash happened shortly before the I-45 interchange. Thankfully no one was injured in the accident, but about seven hundred eggs weren't so lucky. Cartons of eggs were left broken on the roadway, turning the highway into a scrambled mess.
This caused the road to be closed while crews cleaned up the delicious chaos left by the crashed tractor trailer. According to WFAA, the eggs were on their way to a distribution center for Eggland's Best.
The spokesperson also said that the cost of the eggs lost totaled up to about $90,000. I had no idea that amount of eggs could be held in a truck, let alone how much eggs are in value.
I have to wonder also how this looked to the first person that saw this happen in real time. Did the eggs start frying right on the Texas blacktop? I seriously think with the heat that we're going through this week it's possible.
Also, how does a company recoup from the egg loss? From what I know, it takes a while for eggs to be laid by hens. Of course I could be completely wrong in my info.
Hopefully the next egg shipment comes with a load of soft blankets to cradle the eggs or something of that kind. Anything the help to save the eggs!

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple
A while back, I asked the good people of Temple
if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.
This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).
So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.
Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
