163. We had an accidental toxic spill at my house a week or two ago
My husband is restoring an old Winnebago, and as he went to check the gas tank, a panel came off and the contents spilled into the alley. Fortunately, the tank was nearly empty, so my hubby thought he could take the hose to the spill and wash it away. Unfortunately all that water made the small spill into a big spill. My hubby called the city to see what to do, and they said put kitty litter on it. So off he goes to the store to get kitty litter.

By the time he got back home, there were three huge trucks in our alley, one hazardous materials firetruck, a truck full of sand and another truck to pick up the sand. Now we're quaking in our boots about a possible cleanup bill which was mentioned. How much do you think an operation like that will cost us?
