Scariest thing in a small town I have ever heard!
About two and a half months ago I had mentioned here on my blog the craziest thing I have ever heard! Seriously this is for sure the smallest place that I have ever lived considering I grew up in Miami. I love it here and there is a lot that I am still getting use to. For instance this! When we moved in or I should say about a week later I heard this noise.I honest to goodness was running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. Hmmm. Do chickens actually run around when you cut off their heads? I was hyper ventilating and grabbed my cell phone and called my hubby and held up the phone up in the air outside! I screamed "what is this!?!?! Should we take shelter in the bath tub?!?! ARE WE GONNA DIEEEEEE? So after a couple odd looks from my neighbors and Brent screaming for me to calm down. He let me know that it's a small town volunteer fire departments fire alarm. CRAZY! First off I think it's crazy that it's 2009 and they still think everyone works close enough to the fire station and can hear it! Helloooo! We have one stop sign and my street is "The town"! If we had a fire I could walk across the street and flip the switch to turn on the siren myself! Wouldn't you think that calling them on the cell phone would work better. Because I ain't lying when I tell you that I know I've seen those peanut farmers out on their tractors with a cell phone in their hand! I was prepared this time! So here it is!
