This way to the anvil drop!

This way to the anvil drop!

Thursday was a beautiful day for an anvil drop. Our neighbor to the south, Gardner Hardware, started the tradition in 2004, heaving a bright-red anvil from the topĀ  of their store, four floors up, onto an unsuspecting car below.

Thanks to Gopher Towing for providing the target! Enjoy the show.

They start from four stories up.

A colorful crowd was on hand.

My shutter was a little too slow to catch the moment of impact. You can see Taylor reacting to the noise.

Here's the result of the third drop.

Here's the result of the third drop. The red anvil in the hood kind of blends in with the car.

Just another day in the North Loop.
