Natural Bomb

The rain that just began was preceeded by a massive explosion that I can't explain. It occured at the west end of the 520 bridge. Did anyone else hear it? I thought I was under attack. I swear it nearly shattered my windows. This was an exceptionally massive explosion. And now pounding hail has begun. Is it some natural dealio that hailstorms include dynamite?

Edit:



Two engines responded to an alarm at the Queen City Yatch Club tonight.



The Club has seen a lot of Queens over its 89 years, but never had one come off with such a bang. About a dozen people gathered to investigate, but they were feeble-minded (perhaps from the mind-numbing explosion, or drug abuse, or sleepytime), and so I wandered off and found the best witness: A dumbstruck old man who was sleeping on a boat when roused from his slumber by a massive flash and deafening boom, directly above the boat slips. A couple near the shore said they saw black smoke and smelled ozone. Immediately thereafter, hail and snow fell, and it was believed the explosion was a natural phenomenon caused by atmospheric disparities in ionic charge, not terrorists. Still, this reporter has some underwear to change tonight.

Snow/rain mix in Broadview.

Everybody rush out to QFC. If you're going to get gouged on blizzard-related supplies, you might as well do it at the place that does it best.

i never drive in this city. how long would it take to be in Renton at 5:30PM, if coming from Capitol Hill (yes, it'll be a workday)? is there crazy traffic on 5S at that time?
