Last night I was minding my own business here on Whidbey when the living room lit up with flashing red lights. This happened once before when a sheriff’s deputy made a stop of some erratic driver or something. But I had to see. The lights increased and there were two units of our local volunteer fire department in the park. Then it really got busy. A rescue in the bay? That has happened, but not in the evening. More lights and now sirens. This was a major response.
More lights came over the hill and the cause became apparent on the flatbed – Santa’s sleigh, all lit up and escorted by the firefighters who probably don’t get to roll all their equipment all that often. I tried to get an iPhone vid, but wasn’t quite fast enough for the whole show.
