  • 09:30:30: M- is in class, R- is out moving hay to the horses, I am here not writing the book. Something's wrong. (OK, started stock cooking, but...)
  • 10:54:14: Escaped prisoners need food--starved two days. Easy button--revise file, put food in the wagon. But not tasty food. Meal, onions, etc.
  • 11:06:01: Stock is smelling like stock now. But it's not done yet, of course. Bubbly-bubbly, garlicky-oniony, parsley and celery and carrots, o my.
  • 11:40:46: Small plane hit building off 183 in Austin--they're thinking accident as witnesses saw it turn sharply as if to avoid just before hitting.
  • 11:41:31: Evacuation procedures worked well--building's still burning but people (almost all, not sure of few) got out safely.
  • 13:03:09: And now they're saying the guy set his own house on fire and hit the building on purpose. If people would just shut up until they know!
  • 23:06:05: Delivered steel bowls and special book to ranch friends, drove to city & gave skates to son, took food to fencing (no fencing), came home
  • 23:07:06: Looked a D.W.'s incredible series of photos of the demise and dismemberment of Mr. Muscle (was the bull THAT big? Yes.) Gory. Start small

that plane crash

I went to a FEMA ICS course last year as part of my Civil Air Patrol training, and one of the scenarios we had was an airplane crash remarkably similar to this in effects, but accidental.

As it happens, the CBS morning news just ran a sound bite on that story, as I was typing.

Re: that plane crash

My memory is that once the gas tanks rupture you have both liquid gasoline and a fuel vapor, so you get a BLEVE type explosion. We had training on that in EMS (with particular respect to liquified petroleum cars on freight trains, which was our most likely exposure.) The video was...compelling.
