From November 1st to April 1st our town has alternate side parking to help with snow removal during the winter. It’s like a $30 fine or something if you’re parked on the wrong side of the street and if the city needs to plow you can throw on the price of a tow job to your bill. On odd days you park on the odd side of the street. Even days you park even. It goes into effect from like, 11 pm to 6 am.
So last night at about 2 am I remembered I had left the car out on the wrong side of the street. Expletive and uff as I dragged myself out of bed. I was not getting a parking fine on the last night of alternate side parking.
Um – pajama bottoms, a wool winter jacket and hiking boots without socks. I stepped outside and looked to the west. There I saw two figures a block down by the corner bar dressed in white. They quickly glided out of sight towards the river.
I moved the car into the driveway and looked again for the figures. Nothing. I suppose it could’ve been anyone in that early morning light.
