So I still managed to get 3000 words written today despite this:
It turned out that our neighbor decided to back into the fence. Judging by the damage I actually think the driver was settling some cosmic score between them and the fence. Three full sections of fence destroyed and two posts snapped. I had heard the noise when impact happened but just assumed it was the train. It was only when I left to pick my kid up from school that I noticed the giant hole in our fence.
At least nobody was hurt and I had just moved most of the kids toys to the other end of the yard a couple days ago.
