Stretching walking distance

Wow, we sure has the rain yesterday.  The rain amount was a little over five inches in a few hours which is a lot considering this is suppose to be in the drought season.  The rain did last off and on all day long so I did not get to walk.

So this morning I did some extra walking by going down a few side streets.

I saw a few different flowers that was nice. 

I like flowers and when I see the different kind I kind of get excited about it.

I didn't get excited about the way the down pour yesterday washed out the grass clips and gravel out on the sidewalk.

I saw this medic unit probably going to an accident since the fire truck was already gone in front of it.

Did you ever wonder why the fire truck and police get there before the first responders do?
Being an EMT in addition to repairman and welder at the mines where I worked I can explain it.
They taught us to make sure that the other miners had made it safe for EMT's to enter the accident area before going in.  Because if it was unsafe and we got hurt we would not be able to help anyone of the accident victims.
So the police and fireman block off the area to make it is safe for the first responders to do their thing.

Thanks for stopping by and do have a great day.
