Ah yes, Halloween. Almost everybody in Bisbee was in costume.
We went to the Halloween party at the old Central School, which has been converted to artist studios. We came home early for the really scary event in the neighborhood; somebody overshot the turn into the neighboring Circle K, and collided with the pipe-railing over the ditch behind our house. At the time it seemed that the car took the brunt of the collision.
The driver and his passenger got out, looked at the situation, and drove off – well sort of drove off. The car made a schoot-schoot noise every tire rotation. A little later the fire truck showed up. Apparently the car also hit a fire hydrant, and the fire hydrant was spewing forth water.
Even more dangerous was the fact that if the fire hydrant were to fall into the ditch, it could break the gas lines.
