Sometimes stories hit way too close to home... This one literally in my backyard. Down the road from me, the city of Flagstaff had been blasting dynamite for a new development located up on a plateau overlooking the city. Loud bangs had been commonplace. I remember crystal clear that Sunday afternoon, KABOOM! Sound waves from the crash burst thru the neighborhood. The high altitude certainly intensified the concussion. It felt like a bolt of lighting hit a ponderosa pine tree slamming into the house. Moments later... Sirens!!! Obviously something terrible had happened.
