NOT a quiet morning at all

The county decided to resurface our road and started a couple of days ago. This morning they got a late start. They had two lanes done, three to go and soon after the trucks and equipment all got here, there were sirens, and then a helicopter flying around and around over head. Sheesh! The noise was almost deafening.

DH did find out what was going on with the sheriff's dept. and the helicopter. A guy had stolen a car, then hit someone and left the scene, there were injuries to the person hit. The 'creep' went into a yard just a block or two west of us to where a guy was doing some work on a vehicle and the 'creep' asked if he could hide in his truck and he would pay him some money. The guy went inside to call 911, and when he came out the 'creep' was gone. They found his shirt in another yard a couple of houses away. DH talked to one of the sheriffs for quite some time, they never did find the 'creep'. Hopefully they will. You can click on pictures for larger viewing.

I did hedgerow trimming from the inside as the top really needed it, so I was watching all the action from our secret little haven. These pictures were taken from the sidewalk. They did two lanes this morning.

Tomorrow they should finish the road by doing the lane next to us.
It will be nice to have this all completed.
The ground has been vibrating which makes the house do the same,
the noise has been LOUD.

You sure did have a busy day. Our police person lives two doors down so we are always seeing him soar by for any kind of reason. I hope you new road gets done soon.

Sounds like it was a good day to go out to lunch and see a movie. Sheesh!

LOL! That sure is a lot of activity for one moment! Our street got re-done the same way a year ago, and I remember the vibrations. Stroll your gardens. Your mind will drown out the noise.
