A nice neighborhood

I stumbled into an event last night that reminded me of the quality of the neighborhood I live in.

I was driving behind a truck that had some large potted trees laying in the back along with a bunch of gardening implements. Everything was lashed in with the tailgate down. As the truck pulled through an intersection, one of the trees slid out and the pot smashed in the middle of the road. I had to swerve into the bus lane to avoid it.

Swerving put me right behind a parked car. So being kind of stuck, I hit my hazard lights and got out to move the debris out of the way. Before I was out the door though, the driver of a Mustang behind me and a woman at the bus stop were in the street grabbing broken pot pieces. We had everything cleared out of the street in about thirty seconds. The driver of the Mustang pumped her fist at me and said “Go team” as we got back in our cars and cleared out.

This is a good neighborhood.
