While driving in Stillwater during summer time, I've seen all kinds of roadworks: the work on 6th street and Perkins Rd, Western and McElroy, in front of Sprouts, etc. In fact, during the past 5 years in work zone crashes more than 4,400 persons died (85 percent of which was the driver or passenger) and 200,000 persons were injured. Rear-end crashes (running into the rear of a slowing or stopping vehicle) are the most common type of work zone crash. Fatal work zone crashes occur most often in summer and fall. I feel it may be helpful to bring up this safety nugget for us at this time and the upcoming season when the town will be filled up with students.
Last week, our three-year-old son locked himself inside the house while Anand and I are working in our front yard. We didn't realize that until we are headed inside and we saw the garage door locked but, that should be less than 5 minutes he headed into the garage. Our first concern was, was he in the garage? It was a very hot day and he usually cannot open the door that leads to the house. Soon, we went around the house and called for him from the backyard, for which he responded. We were at least relived he is inside the house and not locked in the garage. We talked to him but couldn't get him to open the dead bolt. Out of the three doors that lead to the house, he somehow communicated and opened one of them and got us inside, for which we were very proud he could do it.
