Apartment Life #294

This is a weekly blog post that I'm calling Apartment Hell  Life. I've mentioned a few times some of the crazy things that have gone on in and around my apartment complex and in my neighborhood in the past 25 years that I've lived here and people keep telling me I should write a book. But instead of a book, I've decided to share the crazy things that have happened in and around my apartment complex in the last 25 years here in a weekly blog post.  

On Monday night the fire truck and an ambulance showed up. They brought someone out on a stretcher and they were taken away to the ER. 

A friend told me about an APP called Pulse that you can download and see why the fire department is in your area. They don't cover all places and they don't have the police on there but now I can see why the fire department is in the area. All it says is "Medical Emergency" but that's more info than I had before. If there's a fire, it will say that as well.  This was listed as a medical emergency. 

On Tuesday an ambulance showed up right across the street. 

When the fire department showed up a minute later I looked on the Pulse App and it said they were there for a medical emergency. It doesn't give much info but I'll know if it's a fire at least. 

Later on that night the police were at the end of my apartment building with the lights on. Right before they showed up the police helicopter was flying really low around my apartment complex. Then several police cars pulled up across the street but those pictures didn't come out good. There were about four police cars in all plus an ambulance that showed up but left soon after. The fire truck showed up for a couple of minutes but they also left soon after. I went outside to get better pictures but one of the cops yelled at me and told me to go inside. They don't like it when you're trying to take pictures.

Like I said the pictures didn't come out so good because they were three buildings down from mine but still in my apartment complex. I took the dog outside and tried to get better pictures that didn't happen. There were at least 4 police cars out there and you can see the bright lights from their cars down the street. Several of the police cars were where that tiny blue light is. They were out there for about 2 hours but I have no idea what was going on. 

When the fire dept. showed up on Wednesday, I looked on the Pulse App and it said "Structure Fire" It was in my courtyard and there was no smoke, no fire. The fire department only stayed about 3 minutes. I thought someone was burning the turkey for Thanksgiving. lol  I guess it can't be right every time. lol 

This is what the Pulse App looks like when you pull it up. I circled where they came out for Wednesday. And since probably 75% of my blogger friends already have my address, I'm not worried about posting this. lol  If someone really wanted to stalk me, I doubt it would be too hard to find me anyway. 

Thursday the police showed up for a domestic fight going on in my courtyard. One apartment had a bunch of people over and they had all been shouting at each other. It was Thanksgiving so that really doesn't surprise me but no one was arrested. Is it really Thanksgiving without a family fight where the police show up? lol

It was a full week. 
I don't think the police, fire department and ambulances have ever showed up this much in one week. And these are just the instances that I noticed. There might have been more that I didn't see. 

The high this week was 67F/19C
The low this week was 35F/1C

So that's it for this week's Apartment Hell  Life! Be sure to come back next week for more.
