Errie Reminder of Feb. 5th

If this photo doesn't remind you of the Columbia Gulf fire on Feb. 5th, I don't know what will. This fire took place in Kansas City, MO last night after lightning struck a petroleum gas tank at around 7:30 p.m. . The image is from kansascity.com . The flames could have been seen from miles away and two employees were at the plant when the fire erupted, but where uninjured. You can read more of the article and get more pictures of the fire here at

Really, that must have been scary. The blast was only 7-8 miles from my house and when the storm hit, the only thing you could hear was a distant roar of the fire as well as the sound of the infamous freight train noise.I guess that's why they call it the cone of silence.
