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

Let's not forget the the March 12 2006 micro burst.

Was that the one that tore up apartments along Clinton Parkway?

Yes, it destroyed a building at Aberdeen Apartments. The same building that was rebuilt, and then burned down due to a lightning strike. :S

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.
