Bright lights and meatboxes.

1222_05numberthreeI was minding my own business IMing vogonpoet when I heard sirens. Nothing unusual since we're not too far from US 13, but it sounded like they stopped nearby. I fervently hoped my neighbor's huge light display (tackier than the Adam and Eve catalog) had burned itself out, but when I peeked out the window, I saw a effin' bright work light go up and, as they arrived, counted a firetruck, two ambulances, and miscellaneous smaller vehicles. Looks like the traffic on 13 is down to one lane, too.

The only bright lining to this is that it's past our neighborhood's turnoff (but not kenwestervelt's, so he'll probably pass it later) so it won't slow Himself getting home.

I'll have to watch the news tomorrow and see what happened.
