Jan 2nd Weekend Puzzle, Snow and Fire
Second Weekend of January 2011
Puzzle, Snow and Fire
Over the second weekend of January, we put this wide and narrow puzzle together on Mom's new puzzle table. Neat! Finished it late Sunday evening.
Overnight, we got a little snow, but we were lucky to be in between and south belt and the north belt - so far!
About 5 minutes before 7 on Sunday morning, I heard emergency vehicles go by with sirens blasting. Assumed it was out on 165, as usual. Also, a couple of minutes later, a vehicle went right by our front road about 50-60 MPH! Mom heard the same - we didn't mention it to each other until later in the day.
Last evening (Sunday), Mom posted this story on Facebook: http://hometowndailynews.com/local_news.php?id=3946 telling of the fire south of Allison's house.
Here are our photos, today, supplementing those Allison posted a while ago.
A sorry looking sight, for sure. In the first photo, you can see the new deck and steps that had been added, still standing there... leading to nothing, now!
Otherwise, it is still a pretty good day! ;-)
