Woke up about two hours ago and started my day like any other. went to the bathroom. Got something to drink. Rolled a cigarette. Then got the dogs ready to go outside. We walk out and I froze in my tracks because half the sky was black with smoke. There was an explosion at a factory about eight blocks from my house this morning and as I’m posting it the fire rages on. Apparently from what I have heard they were welding when something caught fire and tried to put it out with water and it only spread. I have no news on fatalities or injuries but I am in a state of shock. I almost had a job at that factory. I could have died today. Right now they have evacuated the immediate area around the factory and are calling in help from fire departments in all the towns in a 50 mile radius.
