There are times when you don't want to hear: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

And one of those times would be when you are walking home from work and there is a group of people standing on the sidewalk about 1/2 a block from your house, and traffic is being diverted. The Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh is a major gas leak from a 2" pressurized line, it's been leaking for over an hour (because 'they' cannot find the connection to shut off), and your entire family appears to be IN the house.

Good Lord.

It's over now (total time of event: approx 4 hours!) and all seems to be well, tho certain areas are still roped off and people are milling about.

Tomorrow morning BF and I are leaving for Victoria to spend his 50th birthday weekend in our mutual hometown, and by the ocean.

Ok. I'm going to the Beehive. But otherwise, it's alllll about him.

See ya Monday.

Yikes! Scary stuff... I'm glad it's all settled now. I hope your trip goes well and you have fun at the Beehive.

Jebus! Glad to hear all is ok. Have fun on your trip, but not too much fun ok - all my friends seem to be moving to Victoria. We need you here. Say happy b-day to the man!
