Last night, around 7:00, I heard fire engine sirens. Looking out the window, I saw a large engine, from the Hampstead Volunteer Fire Department, slowly making its way down the street, lights flashing, sirens blasting. Perched in the bucket at the rear of the truck was old St.Nick, waving to everyone. It was quite a nice surprise. The fire department in my home town does the same thing and everyone enjoys it. In the two years I've been living here in Westminster, I'd never seen it. I grabbed my camera off the kitchen table and made my way out through the snowy driveway for a couple quick snapshots. Trailing behind Santa was another smaller fire truck handing out smoke alarms. Very cool!
Merry Christmas folks!
