Nothing Ever Happens In A Small Town...Until It Does

Last night, on my way home from work, I stopped at the gas station in my home town.  I asked what all the commotion was, because there were several emergency vehicles, including fire trucks, flying into town.  The gal at the gas station said she heard there was a hostage situation!  I really didn't believe her, because it didn't make sense - why fire trucks?

Well, come to find out, at the exact same time, there was a house fire that they had called for backup from two different communities.  The house was right next to a senior citizen complex, so that made sense.

Then, on the outskirts of town, there actually was a supposed hostage situation!  This was the staging area for the police and tactical units.

I'll take boredom anyday.

Boring is always good! I love small town life where nothing ever happens. If someone gets a speeding ticket and flashing lights behind him, everybody knows about it! LOL
