I ws panhandling on Mass when the sirens went off. We found a cubby behind the church at 10th and Vermont. Never came near and we had plenty of beverage to tie us over. No biggie.

We live in East Lawrence and knew no good was afoot when insulation started falling from the sky.

I remember that experience. Glad no one was injured.
