I am writing this as i dont have time to respond to everyone.  There was a chemical explosion about 5 blocks from me today.  Some have been hurt is all we know.  We have now been evacuated so will be loading up the dogs and cat and heading out.  We have many fire dept's here helping our town out.  Waiting on some tactical team from a bigger city to come and assess the situation.  What makes this even worse is we have 45 MPH winds today blowing our way.

We are all okay here, this is just precautionary.  I work tonight from 6-midnight so will be on when i get home.  Thanks for all your concern~~sara

I know I'm not a regular on this forum or anything, but am a friend of Sara's from other forums, so I hope no one minds me posting here.

Sara, I was quite alarmed when I saw your mood and am so glad to read this and know you are all ok.  Stay safe and I hope all in your area come through this without incident.  Take care my friend.  Thinking of you.

Checking in!!  Fire restarted again about 10:00 but so far we are all in our homes.  The 2 people that were in the plant are going to be okay.  It was nothing but a miracle that they survived.  Scary stuff.

The fire dept's did an amazing job keeping the fire contained to just that one building.  With the winds we had the whole entire block could of gone up in flames.  They were there all day.  I saw them heading back to the station around 7 pm and then called out again at 10.  The men and women on the fire dept's here are all volunteers so they leave their families and jobs to do this.  They rely on donations to buy the things they need to do their job.  The city doesnt like to give out money for the things we need but we sure do have a nice new liquor store!!

LOL addict!  

Glad to hear you're doing ok sara.  That can be some scary stuff.  A long time back we had a major gas line light up.  Huge flame shooting straight up into the sky.   Scary and awesome at the same time.  Be well!!!
