To say the least, that was weird! We were watching tv when out of the corner of my eye I I thought that I saw strange lights out on the street, and they seemed to emanate from trucks turning around and around. What the heck?!
This was around 7 o'clock. Full of curiosity, we paused the program, went to the patio door, and confirmed that, indeed, there were trucks turning around and around.
With this better view, we soon discerned that there were 4 street sweepers plus a little truck to guide or follow them. What the heck?! Four? Sweepers? In the evening?
They went south, down the street, past the traffic lights. Thinking that was the end of the weird show, we settled back into our program.
Lo and behold! A few minutes later. we were caused to spring from out chairs yet again. They were back, heading north this time. They drove out of sight; surely they were done.
And they were done, but only for a few hours, as it eventuated.
As usual, Sue trundled off to bed early, and put in her earbuds to listen to a podcast. Shortly thereafter, ~10 o'clock, alerted by quite a racket she heard above her podcast, she jumped out of bed, thinking that she was hearing a helicopter passing over. This does happen from time to time as the hospital's helipad lies just over yonder.
Somewhat incredulously, she notified me that the same four trucks, plus their minder, were passing yet again. Apparently, they made one more subsequent pass, but I missed that one as I was then elsewhere in the house doing other things.
Four sweepers! Turning around! Going up and down! For several hours! In the evening!
I have never seen the like.
