A bit of gratuitous rubbernecking
Yesterday evening about 7 pm I just got done cleaning up my mudding tools after taping the drywall joints in the living room, when we heard the fire trucks roaring up Rt-1 one block away. And they kept coming and coming for about 15 minutes. Pretty soon we had a bit of a traffic jam on our corner as it was apparent Rt-1, the main artery for local traffic had been blocked off and they were routing all traffic through our little neighborhood. A fire pumper was set up on our street about 150 ft from our house to tap in to a hydrant and pump water 1/4 mile up to the scene thus creating an even bigger traffic jam. So after a quick bite to eat, a walk to see the action was in order.
