Our encounter with the police.
The other night, at about 3:45 AM, Melissa and I woke to "You! Put your hands up! Do it now! You in the back put your hand up!! Do it now!". Needless to say I haven't been woken up like that in well ...... um ...... forever. So, we were kinda weirded out by it. We inched our way to the window and peeked out to see a car that was parked directly next to our driveway with some people in the car. We could also see the very front of a police car and its flashing lights. The voice on the other end of the loud speaker proceeded to tell the individuals to get out of the car one by one and walk backwards out of sight toward the police car. So, we decided to go downstairs to see if we could see what the police were going to do. We pulled the shades in the living room aside to see not one but nine police cars lined down the road, two police officers with their guns drawn and aimed at the car, a couple with shotguns slung over their shoulders, and other police standing about. It was really weird to have that happen directly in front of our house. They proceeded to put the individuals into the squad cars and drive off. The whole ordeal ended about 4:30 AM when the tow truck came to get the car. Melissa wanted to take a picture for this blog, but I was kinda leery that the flash would go off and the police would start shooting. So, you'll just have to take our word for it.
