The #1 thing you don’t want to see when you come around the corner…

Filed under: — stan @ 5:40 pm

This afternoon I had to go to the grocery store to pick up some things for dinner. While I was there, Cathy called me and said that our neighbor’s back house was on fire. It was fortunate that she was able to warn me about this, because there are few things more disturbing than to come around the corner and see three fire trucks and an ambulance parked in front of your house.

The fire department was very efficient, and they put the fire out pretty quickly. Have I ever mentioned that Pasadena has great city services?

Fortunately, nobody was hurt in this, although the entire neighborhood is probably going to be extra-sensitive to the smell of smoke for a while. Which is perhaps unfortunate in that I’m barbecuing dinner tonight…

    in going to the grocery store did you ride a bike, drive a car? or old fashion walking?

    It’s too far to walk. I ride my bike if what I have to get will fit in my backpack. But if I have to get gallons of milk and economy-size laundry detergent then I take the car. Maybe I should look in to getting a little trailer for my bike…
