I am tired...

So very tired.

Why?

This happened last night, not too far from my house.



About 4am.

The house shook. One kid woke up terrified. All the neighbours met in the middle of the street thinking this was a terrorist attack because all we heard for almost and hour was constant explosions. One older woman on my street who lived through the war was having a tough time because it reminded her of her horrible childhood.

Shudder.

Details sketchy at this point. Looks like a propane depot... A major part of the city has been closed, part of it evacuated. This is the first time in my life here in Toronto - I've lived here for all my 37 years, that I have witnessed such an event.

Thank you to Sci-Fi Dad for helping me embed this video. You rock! :)
