Nothing quite like hearing a ton of sirens in your backyard.
Follow that up with an ABC News chopper flying in overhead. And more sirens.
Then have your neighbor tell you that there's a hostage situation at the hospital across the train tracks from your home.
Seriously! A 21-year-old inmate was being treated and he grabbed the gun from a security guard and took a nurse hostage. After several hours and a breakdown in negotiations, he was killed by a SWAT team.
Makes for a helluvan afternoon, eh?
