Feeling right at home!

The first day, we were greeted by loud sirens, early morning rising at 7:00, couldn't sleep anyway, it was OK. It was just like home, I couldn't resist walking down the road to see what was going on!

Many sirens, lots of traffic, with a man who 'tipped over into the ditch', as the firefighter told me!
UPDATE: the driver is a 30-year-old G1 driver, who had alcohol in his system. Grow up, people. Two passengers were in the car. They were airlifted to hospital. Yikes.

The firefighter watched the traffic, as it was down to one lane. Then, after the driver went off to hospital, they washed off the road.

Turns out we have fabulous volunteer firefighters in Lanark County, too!

The police kept speeding by. It was worrisome, but it happens about 3 times a year, I was told! A quick corner that surprises drivers. The motorcycles REALLY speed by.  
The trucks are bad, and drivers passing THEM!

Love the back yard but not a fan of being so close to the road. Your old placed seemed further in from the traffic but I'm not sure.

You have a lot going on. I love video of the deer. They move so gracefully.

Congratulations Jenn on your new home and neighbourhood. The property looks beautiful and the Perth area is wonderful.
I am heading east next week to visit my daughter, S-I-L and sprouting grandson...can hardly wait. First time spending fall in Ontario in 13 years!
Welcome home Jenn:)

I never can catch the deer, they run off while I'm grabbing the camera. Good for you!
