Evacuated


This building is across the street from my office. News story here: http://cbs5.com/topstories/local_story_183100825.html

I could smell the smoke as I entered the downtown area and while I saw the fire and police vehicles blocking off the street I couldn't figure out what exactly was going on until I parked my car and walked towards my building. The building across the street (which housed a Walgreens among other things) looks like a bomb has gone off in it. At some point this afternoon the roof caved in and they have evacuated all local business through Wednesday at the earliest including yours truly just in case the whole building collapses. So I guess I'll be working from home / squatting at other offices or a Kinko's in order to get my job done for the next few days. Fun!

I was wondering if you were going to blog about this :D

Thankfully you are safe. As if downtown PA wasn't crazy already, this should really screw things up!
