Since mom works at home, she's kinda the Mrs. Kravitz of the neighborhood. Mostly she calls the Coast Guard if some poor sap can't get back to the dock in their kayak or rounds up the neighbors dogs that sneak out of their yard. Boring stuff.
But yesterday, while sitting at the command center she couldn't help but notice our neighbors tree was being blown onto the power lines. (We're having some nasty weather here) It was hard not to notice since the lines were arching and sparking all over the place. The scary thing is it wouldn't stop arching and we were all getting really spooked! So she asked me what we should do and of course I said, call for helps mom!!
Don't worry mom, you go back to work and I'll keep an eye on things.
I was busy! But mom didn't seem to mind having the fireman parked in front of the house all day....
