Cameron: Last Friday, October 3rd, we heard thunder rumbling closer. All of a sudden B- A- N- G!!!!!
Micah: Jan was sitting at the kitchen table balancing her checkbook. She shot straight up in the air from off the stool, and ran for the back door.
Merci: Just as she thought, another accident. The white truck on the left and the truck in the middle of the intersection had collided. The one on the right stopped to help. (This photo was taken through the chain link dog pen.)
Percy: No sooner did she snap the photo, the storm hit. Vehicles came and left, two police cars arrived, one from the county Sheriff's Dept., and a State Trooper. It was pouring rain but due process prevailed.
Sam: Eventually, a tow truck arrived for the smaller truck. The rear driver's side door was caved in on the big white work truck but it drove off under it's own steam. Is that correct? I didn't see any steam.
Rusty: By that time the rain had stopped. Eventually, everyone pulled away and the neighborhood returned to normal.
Cyndi: Yesterday (Thursday) as Jan walked home from Toastmasters Club, the mail truck was parked in front of our house away from the intersection, a usual. A few minutes later, the mail truck was directly in front of our house behind a car with a new mail carrier (ID but no uniform yet) talking to a little old lady parked in the road in front of him.
Marcus: Jan looked at me and asked why a little old lady would stop a mail truck to chit chat with the driver. I dunno, I replied. Why don't you ask her? No, I don't want to be nosy, she answered. Really? Since when?
Buddy: It took a few minutes but we all finally realized they weren't chit chatting. One vehicle had sideswiped the other and they were waiting for reinforcements. After a bit another mail truck arrived and there was a lot of chatter. Then a non-postal pickup truck arrived. We guessed a postal supervisor because there was a lot more chatter.
Micah: Finally a police car arrived. More chatter and moving around. And then a State Patrol Officer came. Lots of back and forth movement and chatter.
Caemron: All that exercise they were getting made us tired. We didn't think they would ever leave!
Merci: But they did.
Buddy: The moral of this post is to stay away from our house for a while unless you have good collision insurance.
Percy: Well, at least we don't have to worry about there being an accident in our alley.
Marcus: Why is that?
Cyndi: Because we don't have alley access, silly.
Marcus: Oh, right. I forgot.
Sam: We don't have any pictures of Thursday's accident. Jan didn't think it was a good idea to go outside to take photos of a federal truck after a minor incident, especially since she would have had to take pictures of any damage from the middle of the street.
Cyndi: We tried to tell her no one would notice but she wasn't fooled ... I mean, she wouldn't listen.
Rusty: We don't have a Mousebreath interview today. Hopefully, we will next Friday.
