Massachusetts people

Dot's post reminded me that we also have posters who live in the area of the gas explosions in Massachusetts. I hope everyone is safe and if evacuated, back in their homes with power again.

My nephew’s daughter attends Merrimack College in North Andover and he was in the area for work. So he stayed local so he could take her home. She returned to school Sunday night.

I didn't even think of kids at the college and there wasn't much on the news about them. I always envied those that had gas lines but now appreciate that we don't.

I cannot believe the mess and damage that was done and how frightening it must have been for those in those three towns.

My DS and DDiL were away on their honeymoon when the explosions occurred. They live in North Andover. The fires were on the other side of town.
Driving home on Saturday night/Sunday morning exits were still blocked off and Jim said it was like driving through black fog.

Today, I met with an elderly woman who lives on one of the streets where some of the explosions occurred. She described the chaos of the day, and Continued confusion for days after. She is now safely back in her home.
