I Hate Things That Happen On Friday Night!
Advertisements [?]
Last night, around 9 PM, I was lying in bed in my St. Paul, MN home when I heard what sounded like an explosion. That was followed by 20 minutes of large and small explosions happening almost continuously. Alarmed, I went outside, and sure enough, looking south south east, you could see the clouds lighting up from the large explosions. My neighbors were all outside, too. There's no way this was thunder, since it was almost continuous for 20 minutes, and weather radar showed nothing anywhere near the area. I counted the seconds between the flash and the sound, and it was about 5 seconds, so we're talking a mile or so as the distance. In that direction, there is the 3M corporate headquarters, Interstate 94, and a bunch of businesses.

Naturally, I went back in the house and turned on the 10PM local news. Nothing. This morning. Nothing. Nothing on the Internet, either. I'm sure I'll finally find out what happened, but news crews are already gone for the weekend, so it may not be until Monday that I find out what the heck all that was about.

I hate things that happen on Friday night. It's almost impossible to find out what the heck happened. I could call the police department, I suppose, but I won't. They have stuff to do, and I'm just curious.
