The cat is on patrol. He smells gas faster than he smells smoke.
But this does mean I'm getting our stove looked at.
I'm afraid the first I knew of the neighbourhood explosion was a phone call from South Africa, where the news still seemed to suggest that a bomb was involved.
The explosion happened on a block just north of 116th, on Park, which is actually right opposite the Urban Garden Center, which occupies space under the raised railways tracks, there, that take Metro North out of Grand Central. So that is worrying. I am waiting to hear back from Dimitri to hear that they are all well.*
There is a lot of helicopter activity in the sky.
Thank you for all the calls, emails and Facebook messages.
Update: * Dimitri and his staff are safe, but very concerned for their neighbours.
