Hovering around

I was in town last night when this stealthy (nearly silent) medical helicopter landed on the school track up the hill from our homestead.

No one was hurt; it was a demonstration. The kindly fire chief gave my husband and the girls a proper introduction to the "ca-coppa" (Laura's pronunciation just for you, Barb). And then he took this photo on his phone.

Today no one will stop talking about the experience. According to Sarah, "it hovered an inch" above their heads as it landed. "No," scoffs Madeleine, "it was at least a car length."

Pretty cool deal for us country kids.
