The Explosion – Puerto Rico

Sitting at Bodega last night …. enjoying some great conversation and good wine.  All the sudden BAM!  My eyes got big…  gun fire?  Oh no, must be a car backfiring my friend tells me.

This morning we wake up to the news:

A video that pans from the fire to my new place (yellow building):

And a few pics as well:

To recap, we’ve had electricity outages, a bar shooting killing 8, a union strike meant to shut down the city and now an explosion at a petroleum facility.    Oh Puerto Rico what do you bring next??
