When tornadoes have been really near, killed people, destroyed communities, you can be a little nervous.
I went outside with my dogs this evening, and my neighbor was outside staring at the trees.
I asked what was wrong.
She said she had seen sparks arcing among the tall trees in back and she didn't know what to do.
I did. I called 911 and described her witness.
Fire truck was out immediately. They called the energy company.
I didn't know what would happen. An hour later, the energy company was there.
We have had a lot of nasty weather south of here a few tens of miles. You know, in Texas, if it is within 100 miles, it is close. So we COULD have weather. Not likely.
I called. I peeked out afterwards to see no fires developed.
I keep thinking I failed as a good neighbor and it dawned. I know little more about her because how can you be neighbors without knowing each other? She's new. The homeowner is out of town. I did give her help, whether or not the help she wanted. It was the best help I knew.
I think I was a good neighbor. I tried to be.
