I had quite a scare in the stock market the other day. I have a good chunk of money invested in the market and as I watched the other day the market took its worst plunge ever.
I kept thinking, don’t panic, we are in it for the long run and it will come back. Turns out that it came back as fast as it plunged. Although it was still at a great loss, it could have been worse. The scary thing is no one knows what happened. There is a lot of speculation but nothing definite yet. Today was a good day as the market saw it’s biggest jump since 2005 but still has a ways to go before it pays back everything it took last week.
The resort here in Havasu is about a mile from the Havasu Airport where a number of small planes fly in and out everyday. There is no official rule but they are not supposed to fly over the resort on their approach or takeoffs. Sometimes, however, It appears they are going to land right here in the resort. We all say it’s a matter of time before one does just that. Well the other day I was sitting outside when I heard a plane go over that sounded like it was having a problem. Shortly after I heard a BOOM! I wondered what it was but didn’t give it another thought until I started hearing sirens. I took a look around to see if I could tell where the sirens were headed when I spotted a cloud of black smoke rising from the airport. Sure enough the plane I heard crashed at the airport, flipped over, and burst into flames. Fortunately the student pilot made it out with only minor injuries.
Sure is thinning out here at the resort. Most have headed out for the summer, a bit early in my opinion. We are going to head on over to California next month to pickup the grandson for a summer of travels. He is pretty excited about that.
