Motorists are being asked to avoid Larapinta Drive between the Stuart Highway and Millner Road, where a pergola has blown onto the westbound lane.
Now, I'm growing used to the strangeness of the animals and plants here, so I assumed that a pergola was yet another strange living thing that I knew nothing about. Those more cultured readers out there, however, are probably laughing at me now because you know that a pergola is just a structure commonly found in gardens. I guess it must have caused quite a traffic jam there in Alice.
And now I know.
