Dang Barry. A natural gas plant can never be far enough away.

I don't scare easy, but one of the scariest days was seeing a propane truck tipped over on the side of the road at a stop sign. A coworker and I drove by, we were the first witnesses. The driver was ok, he was on the phone calling emergency services. We drove back by later and the whole area was cordoned off.

This is not the image from the accident, but it's similar enough.

Afternoon, all! I was talking with a guy at work today about why liquor stores would be deemed "essential" and he said so that people could keep their "spirits" up during this time. :lol:

60 homes damaged --NO major injuries
Wow ! Sounds like the explosion in Peabody Massachusetts in 2006. A paint factory blew up in the middle of the night. It damaged about 90 houses. The paint factory was in the middle of a dense neighborhood.
