Neighborhood Elves To The Rescue

We've finally got a good autumn storm going and the morning wind blew strong enough to topple my patio fence. My favorite neighbors noticed the problem first and came over in the blowing rain to kindly tie it back up for me. While they were engrossed with that task, a surfboard blew over in the backyard, which knocked into a 5 foot carved tiki, which fell over onto a water pipe, which broke and shot a water geyser into the air. The neighbors left the fence long enough to turn off the water valve, which stopped the geyser. The fence is now secured to a tree trunk, thanks to their efforts. It's good to have such nice neighbors.

Looks like the one in the grey sweatshirt isn't doing much.... Maybe just watching a little.
