Boom shaboom

I hear there are explosions in Toronto around Keele and Wilson. Hope nobody gets hurt. UPDATE: unbelievable images of the fireballs. Also, maps, eyewitness accounts, etc.

I hear the Wall Arch along the Devil’s Trail in Utah has succumbed to time and erosion, so another visual icon of the American West has fallen. I’m glad various photography friends had a chance to get pictures first.

Paul phoned yesterday and said, tersely, “Go look out your front door!” I did, and the biggest, brightest rainbow I’ve seen since I was in the DR was staring back at me.

Jeff’s back after a successful trip. It’s good to have him home.

  1. Our house has been taking the biggest shakes I have ever experienced in Ottawa. Turns out the neighbours up the street are having the back yard excavated for a swimming pool. WTF are they using — dynamite???

  2. Anyone heard from Bob Stark (Evelyn’s brother)? I’m not sure, but I think his house on Calais Ave. is within the evacuation zone.

  3. The Starks live smack dab in the center of the evacuation area; I just checked on google maps; as in, really, really close to the storage depot. I hope they are okay and we should really contact the Red Cross or the ESS people.
