Well, That Was Exciting....

So yesterday morning, as I was trying to post the day's blog, our power went out.  Mom made a comment about how she heard some loud "pow" noise, but thought it was just a backfire.  When we started to notice the amount of traffic that was backing up and then turning around in our driveway, Jesse and mom decided to take a look.  Jesse came back frantically, wanting the camera.  This is what he saw:

Apparently a Pierce County Sheriff officer was chasing a burglar when someone pulled out in front of him, and he lost control.  It was early on a Saturday, so I don't believe there would've been that much traffic.  He hit a power line, and ignited a gas line.  So, we had Comcast, PSE (Puget Sound Energy), probably six sheriff vehicles (including motorcycle cops), and three fire trucks.  No one was hurt.  It made two news stations, and you can see one of the stories here:

In other news, Jesse went fishing this morning, probably for his last time in a while.  He has some pictures that he has gotten from fishing, but I don't have them yet.  I will update our online album and post them when I get them.

We're going to be going to lunch today with a bunch of friends, and then going bowling afterwards.  I will post those photos also when we get back.

I updated the October album online, if you would like to check it out, you can click here:
