Yes, you heard it.  That was indeed the musical firetruck.  The iconic tour around the island is already underway.  Wasn’t it just Halloween?  I am never ready for Christmas, but I must say the snow day we had last week did really nudge me into the holiday spirit. I love that the truck hits our neighborhood on the 23rd or 24th every year (because by then I am finally ready for Christmas) but I love seeing the truck out and about the island as we lead up to the merry day.  Thank you Bainbridge Island Fire Department for this very Bainbridge tradition.   Listen for the truck 5-9pm from now until Christmas Eve.  Link to a larger version of the map and schedule here.

And note, if the truck has extra time they can make additional laps through your neighborhood.  We have been lucky enough to see them twice in some years.
