Good morning. I'm off to a bit of a late start today, but I just did not want to come out from under my cozy covers this morning. I finally had to give in to Pogo's antics. He woke up quite hungry this morning, and was insisting that I get up and make him some breakfast. So, like a good mama, I did just that. Gosh, that little fellow has me tucked right under his thumb. Er, I mean his paw.
On the weather channel they are discussing how we are all enjoying the "January thaw". I wonder if any of those folks have actually visited my little part of New England lately. I always thought that the temperature had to get up over freezing for the "thaw" and stay there for a while. So far, we're not doing so good in that department.
We are expecting a day that reaches 40 and a couple days in the mid 30's soon, but until it actually happens, we can't count on it. The weather becomes crazier every year now. It must be quite difficult for the meteorologists to give accurate weather forecasts.
As to the 365 photo project, I'm having a problem with some of the topics. So I think I'll just get the ones that I can, and try to catch up with the missed photos whenever I can. The word for day 16 is "impact". Last night while I was watching TV, I heard a really loud BANG!
I got up and looked out to see what appeared to be a nasty auto accident, and so I called the police to report it. Next thing, all the traffic started backing up with a lot of vehicles turning around in my driveway and heading back in the other direction.
Soon the whole area was flooded with flashing blue and white lights followed by flashing red lights. Several cruisers, an ambulance, three tow trucks, a ladder engine and goodness knows what else was all outside in front of our yard. I did not go out to look, but I know it was serious because three cars were taken away on trucks, and at least one person left in an ambulance.
Here are a few photos that I took through the storm door. (with my phone) The last photo shows the EMT's who have just put someone into the ambulance. The photos aren't great as it is dark and I'm shooting through glass and screen with no flash. But they surely are colorful. These are for "Impact".
My next photo is for Day 1 - "First". This was the first auto accident that Pogo has seen. He was quite excited with all the action taking place on the street in front of our yard.
I do have an update on Audrey's auto. The insurance company called her to say that the car was totaled. Sadly, this was a nice little car, but now it's time to think about a new one. Hopefully, things will all work out and she'll soon have a new set of wheels to get around in.
An update on Jazzy's rehearsals for the musical Wizard of Oz, her director said that she was so happy with how Jazzy sang "Over The Rainbow". When Jazzy was done singing, the director told her "that's why you were chosen for Dorothy". That's awesome, Jazzy!!!!! We are all so proud of you.
Well, now it's time to get dressed. The oil delivery man will be here soon. Also, I see the mail truck pulling up in front of the driveway. Be right back.
Oh goodie! A couple of days ago, I ordered some new memory cards for my camera and they are in today's mail. Woo Hoo! I'm already preparing for my upcoming vacation. I don't like to be caught without extra memory cards.
Well that's the news for this morning. So, till Sunday, Y'all stay warm and have a beautiful weekend.
Hugs, Edna B.
