In the middle of my usual Saturday morning activities (this usually means cleaning), I heard a loud BOOM, much like a transformer blowing up.  Since I’d heard many transformers up during Hurricane Ike, I thought I knew this noise well.

The second boom came just a few minutes later, followed by screaming, sirens and another boom.  I looked out the window and couldn’t see anything because of all the smoke.

Naturally, I grabbed my camera, went out the door, went back inside, put pants, shoes and a coat on, then went back outside and took pictures.

This is what was left of this man’s truck.  Strewn behind it were boxes of steak that the man kept running back to the truck and tossing on the grass.  He apparently had a cooler and a deep freeze in his truck, too.  
By the time I got outside, the firemen had the fire under control (the tree above it had caught fire, too).  Here are some pics of what was left of the truck.

This is how close it was.  My car is just out of frame.  It was a little excitement in my day, then I went back to cleaning!  woo hoo!

    WOW. He is so lucky to be alive. Always fun having a little excitement on a Saturday morning! Mine came in the form of a 2.5 mile walk/run at the gym.

    Yes I should add that nobody was harmed!
