Quite literally, our day did start with a bang. The children and I were nearing the end of breakfast when a truck drove past. Within seconds we heard "BANG!!" I imagined the worst .... so I ran out the front door and up the driveway. As I did I could see a puff of dust - not flames or such like - just a billowing cloud of dirt/dust. When I looked down the road I could see a truck driver running back towards his "load" which had careered clean off the trailer.
A huge slab of concrete lay on the ground. My neighbours were at the top of their driveways also. We acknowledged to each other that we were okay. As I spoke to one neighbour a little later, he explained he was running a few minutes late to get to a job. He could quite easily have been sitting at the top of the drive when everything came off the passing truck.
Thanks for dropping by
