The post below is about ambulances and fire trucks and this post, ironically, is about what happened over today's noon hour. All of a sudden the campus was filled with the sound of sirens and a whole caravan of emergency vehicles zoomed through the campus over to the eastern most dorm. Turned out the alarm went off for no real reason, but Maplewood and Richmond Heights fire/rescue people showed up just to be sure. Also a policeman from Clayton and a fire chief.
When I got home asked Dale if he'd seen all the fire trucks and he said, "You came right up to me. I was standing with Wrede and I called out to you." I never paid any attention, but sure enough this picture shows him. I put a red arrow into the right side of the screen pointing him out.
And then when it was over, even before the trucks left some students began carrying the picnic tables back under the dorm tent.
Just a brief change of pace for the day.
