Yes, I'm hearing beautiful drumming sounds coming from my basement...he's getting the hang of reading music and playing beats...it's good.
But I woke early this morning to the sound of a helicopter overhead, one of those continuous drones for at least 20 minutes that said that something must have happened. I checked the news to find that the local train had hit a car and sent it flying into a nearby house, though with minimal damage as far as I can see.

It is an intersection where there are no gates for the crossing, because it is such a wide intersection, it wouldn't be possible or useful to have gates that would do any good. The commenters on the article that I found wrote about people trying to beat the train at that crossing, but I was hearing that it was also very icy this morning and I think that maybe the driver just couldn't stop. The train pulls into the station there, so it is going very, very slowly. I'm sure it could have been a lot worse otherwise. Hopefully the driver is ok, there's not much info except that he or she was taken to a nearby hospital.
