Excitement! Now containing explosions!

Explosion in Warren levels building
… I was about a mile and a half away, working out at the gym, when I heard a boom and felt the building shake. The concussion from the actual explosion was felt even further away, by reports from friends on Facebook. The link above was the leading story on our channel 7 news. My nephew and his family live only about 1/2 mile away, but they said they were OK.

The building was a commercial laundry, but it’s pretty much rubble now. Officials say it was probably a gas leak, but the investigation is still underway.

About songdogmi

I'm a longhaired almost-hippie stuck in the inner suburbs of a major rust-belt metropolis who's thoughtful, creative, and kind of geeky. In exchange for a paycheck I run around in a cubicle maze most days. When I escape, I play music, hang out in coffee houses, dink around on the computer, take naps, and think I should be off in the woods somewhere. Every once in a while I get in my car and drive far, far away, though I've always come back so far.

      Thanks! Fortunately we were far enough away, though I have to ask my nephew if they got any debris in their yard (probably didn’t, but they were a lot closer than I was). It was just freaky.

    Darn burritos… =:-o

    Glad you weren’t hurt, though.

      But it was the Quatro de Mayo. Just a bit too early!

      Thanks… although I think I screwed up my knee a little later during my workout, but that was my own fault. As long as there’s ibuprofen, I should be OK.
