    I'm in Stilly for work today, and the guy who I just met for lunch said that he was getting his haircut on the strip right before this and heard/felt an explosion...

    When they went outside to look, they saw smoke coming from the Valero over on 6th & Washington - anyone heard anything about this? What blew up?

    I was driving by it and it looked like a trailer was on fire not a building

    Becky has a pic of it on her fb page said a gas line blew right across the street from her office. It is right behind the Valero station. Said there was a giant ball of flame.
    .
    *edit* guess it wasn't a gas line.

    Buddy of mine told me it was a couple propane tanks. Said one blew up and the other was spraying fire out of it.

    Weird. I live right by there and didn't hear or feel a thing. Of course I'm the same guy who slept through a tornado, so...

    Hey, I'm right there with you. I was in Shawnee when the Murrah bombing happened didn't feel a thing, but people east of us did. I haven't felt a single earthquake the past couple of years when they have been happening around here. When I lived in South Carolina there were two earthquakes that many around me felt that I didn't.

    This is precisely why we need to build a moat between Mexico and Texas.
