WTF?!?

State police report "... at least 70 locations were affected by fires, explosions and "investigations of gas odor."  They're still sorting it out, but it sounds like investigators are focusing on over-pressurized gas lines.

Any thoughts, GHG?

That sort of thing happened about 10 years ago near me in the local city of San Bruno, CA.  A major gas company distribution line that passed through one of the town's subdivisions blew up and destroyed many homes in a huge fireball. The company, PG&E (what I like to call Pacific, Graft and Explosion), was found to be at fault for not maintaining their pipeline and had to pay many millions of dollars to rebuild the entire neighborhood and to compensate its affected residents. And it is still being rebuilt years later.  :(

I'm pretty sure their customers took care of that little problem...

Speaking of WTF current events, just what the hell do you think might be going on at the National Solar Observatory in Sunspot, New Mexico? Is it time to fuel up our Enfields, line our helmets with Reynolds Wrap, and make for the foothills?
