Yellow Dust

Our welcome mat and some footprints in the dust that is settling.

We had a fine layer of yellow dust covering the hallway outside our front door this morning. Just as Nathan was getting ready to leave for work, we heard lots of running around outside. When he opened the front door, he was greeted with a cloud of dust so thick, he thought the building was on fire. After a few minutes, the dust started to settle, and Nathan took a few pictures.

It turns out the young men who live across from us decided it would be a good idea to play with the fire extinguisher. We’ve had a few problems with them before

Here you can still see some dust in the air in the hallway.

now…including one incident where they continually banged on our front door when I was home alone with Elias, and threatened to steal our Christmas wreath…but that story is for another time.

Anyway, the firemen showed up along with the police. One of the boys got arrested for disorderly conduct. Not much harm done except for the huge mess! And please pray that nothing will catch on fire…because I will have to run all the way up to the third floor or down to the first for a fire extinguisher until ours is replaced. No candles for us until it is!
