Earlier this week, Carolyn B. R. Hammett and her husband were driving near their home in Greenbelt, Maryland, on a very stormy afternoon when they spotted something unusual. There, standing firmly in the middle of the rain-drenched road, was a police officer.
She was soaking wet, but smiling the biggest smile.
Hammett was confused at first, thinking the road must be flooded and that the officer was there to alert drivers. But that was not the case.
"As we got closer, we realized that she was standing over something," Hammett told The Dodo.
