We were at the bank this morning before my dentist appointment and noticed an ambulance speeding by with alarms going.
I got to my dentist office and was told that a 34 year old man in town was killed in a gas line explosion. The local tv station said he was on a back hoe and hit a buried gas line. It appears it caused a flash fire. While still at the dentist a man came asking if this guy was a patient, as they needed his dental records. This poor guy went to work just like he did every day and I'm sure never expected anything like this. There was another gas line accident last week in a nearby town and it was reported the gas line was only 3-4 inches underground. That doesn't seem too safe to me. They were saying something about erosion bringing them close to the surface. I don't know, but it's a tragedy.
We are enjoying the cool weather today. We have the air-conditioner turned off for the first time in months and it's lovely! What a difference a day makes. It was 59 degrees when we got up this morning. We haven't seen the 50's for a long time and it sure felt nice.
Al is out mowing around the motor home. It's really too nice to stay inside....but unfortunately, I have house work to do.
