34. This will take a long time to fix.

Natural gas piping, valves, meters and appliances will have to be tested and/or inspected before placed back in service due to being over-pressured. Old, corroded underground lines may have developed leaks and those must be found and repaired. I certainly don't envy the gas company workers at this point, but commend their work toward getting this emergency under control.

If there's anything to be grateful for at this point, it's that this event didn't happen in the dead of winter.

Our thoughts go out to all those affected and to the family of the young man who lost his life........
