    Big explosion Rocks my house

    http://cnn.netscape.cnn.com/news/sto...0050809MIPS103


    I love how they say detroit at top romulas in the top line plant is actually in wayne .. Less than 1/2 mile from my house


    So here i am last night watching a war movie when KAAAA WHOOOOMM whole house shakes pics falling off the wall and all i see is super bright orange.. Course not knowing what was going on i slaped a pair of shorts on and a 1911 and went outside to see about a 700 foot cloud of pitch black smoke rolling up ..

    about every 5-10 mins then more rapidly down to 3 min there were smaller explosions took about 40-45 mins for them to come on and tell us to evac the area for toxic stuff..

    News crews handt even mde it here when we were told to evac so off to mom and pops house for the night .. back home now as they say its ok but most of the places are shut down

    Wow! Glad to know everyone's okay. How was the evacuation in your area? Panicky and traffic logged? Orderly?

    Bud

    Glad you and yours are OK.
    If you start glowing like a set of Tritium Night Sights in a few days you'll know you shouldna breathed that stuff in.
    Really check your house foundation & stuff. If there is any damage or new cracking then they are probably liable to cover it.

    My wife works for a Specialty Research Chemical Co. here in PGH. Always one of my fears something is going to "blow up" or leak "big time" there someday.
    They are pretty practiced with their evacuation drills though & it's a really modern facility. Great security & really nice "fail~safe" type safety systems. So...hopefully nothing will ever happen.

    Dang that is CRAZY. Glad to hear you are unscathed Bud. Be on the lookout for zombies. They should start rising there within a few days.
