I've been wanting to post on some qualities that my local community has, that I think are, more generally, indicators of a good community to belong to. I have to go to work :) so have to start this with a short post, but hopefully folks here can build on this.
Here's an indicator I got this morning that I live in a good rural community:
- It is -11 degrees F., and the fire siren just went off. That means that our local ALL VOLUNTEER fire department is at this moment suiting up to go help one of our neighbors in bitter cold conditions.
