    Yowzers!!! How did I miss this on the news?! Disaster averted, though, thank God.

    Those are some lucky people in that area! Gas in the sewer...yikes!!! That destroyed a portion of Guadalarja, Mexico about 10 years ago. Destroyed many blocks, killed many, injured many more. Kudos to the firefighters and esp to the guy that had enough wits to hit the emergency shutoff to the pumps.

    Here is a question, what is to keep a terrorist from high jacking a truck full of gas and driving it into a gas station full of gas?

    Thanks for the post, Oramar. That clerk showed some quick thinking! He deserves a bonus & a raise!

    I don't even want to THINK about the highjacking scenario, Oramar. Scary!
