i was just taking some photos of my work at the upstairs window – wondering about the irritating “popping” sounds i could hear – and when i looked up (to see why it’d suddenly gone so dark) the sky was BLACK!
i was hearing EXPLOSIONS!
some very lazy blogging of what unfolded (kinda)
at this point, everywhere just stank of smoke. like burning tyres. the explosions had stopped, and all i could hear was fire engines.. and the police helicopter overhead SHOUTING AT US to STAY INDOORS!
it was not the apocalypse :(
it was the old thorntons factory exploding and burning, covering the town in asbestos-y soot (“soot the size of tennis balls” says Husband <– i sent him out to find out what was going on)
i sent my pictures in (sans watermark)
you’d never have guessed all this was going on – i’m, like, such a professional.
