That morning I was hoping to capture some great picture of the sunrise on my way to work. So I put the camera in my car. Good intentions but it was FOGGY! No sunrise.
While sitting at the desk at work someone yelled “Come look!”. There was a fire – huge, roaring – a few blocks from us. We later found out it was a railroad car. I ran to my car and grabbed the camera. Just wish I could have gotten closer! The smoke was so thick! They eventually evacuated everyone within a few blocks due to the chemicals in the area. We still do not know what caused the explosion and fire. It made for a very exciting Friday and an early day.
