The Crick is Getting A New Library!

Once upon a time, there was a library in this town. Then poof! It was gone in a pile of smoke. Decades later, the people who loved the town of Hildale & Colorado City decided it was time for a new library to increase the happiness and education of the children, among other things. Little by little, the dream of a new library took shape. I have documented some of this exciting journey below.


 

 

 

DMV Delight

That’s right, these chairs above represent how busy it was when I walked into the St. George DMV. Compare to Las Vegas DMV below. And that’s just one section!

Vegas DMV
Vegas DMV – sometimes lines go out the door! I’ve waited hours and still had to come back the next day.

To all my friends from Las Vegas who have to waste an entire day or two trying to get something done at the DMV: my wait time was maybe – 39 seconds? Go ahead and be jealous!

Not only was it NOT busy, but our worker was really nice too. And she was wearing pink!  She was the best part of all.

Safety in the Storm

Ever since the tragic flood of 2015 (read about it HERE), this community is very sensitive whenever there is a flood warning, or when it floods. Tolga and I were out walking – taking photos – early in the morning when the rain started. Within an hour, the rains had created a raging flood that was so powerful, we worried it was going to wash a walkway bridge away. We were awestruck by its force, dragging strong, heavy trees like they were feather-light twigs. As soon as the rain stopped, the city trucks were out removing the wash over the streets. Although we thought it would take a month to do the cleanup, the streets were clear and drive-able by that afternoon. The sun came out, some flowers survived and the chickens bawked in the underbrush like nothing extraordinary happened. We gave words of encouragement to a fearless snail, then we walked home in utter amazement, and thankful everyone in the community stayed safe.
