On my drive home today my mom told me that breaking news cut into the Friends rerun she was watching because there was a fire in San Bruno. At the time they thought it might be a plane crash (it is only a could miles from San Francisco Airport) but as I was talking to her they discovered it was actually a gas leak. Many of you have probably already heard about it because it is all over the news by now but it killed me that I couldn't just turn on the TV and see what was going on. Luckily the internet was already on it. It is quite incredible:

My thoughts are going out to San Bruno, including some of my family members.
