Matilda had an exciting New Years' Eve and finally got her name into the police records. She dialed 911 at her grandparents house and then hung up. The police called back and after our quick explanation, informed us they were required to come out. Tim, Matilda and I were, conveniently, headed back into town and left poor Grandma Kathy to field the deputy's questions when he arrived. Kathy said he seemed understanding and was polite when he asked her to call off the dogs so he could maneuver in the driveway. The incident only peaks my interest in what would happen with an LA 911 call. Generally you get put on hold initially, but would they eventually call you back? And just how many hours (days) would it be before a deputy arrived to investigate?
