Train Derailed

Hello! Well, there has been no sewing going on this week, but hubby works this weekend, so i'm hoping to get something accomplished.

Last weekend a train carrying ethanol from Chicago to the Carolinas derailed at the edge of town. Twenty six cars went off the track and several of them exploded. It happened at 2:15 am on Sunday. People nearby were evacuated and said it looked like daylight out. Nineteen hours later, the ethanol was still burning. Here are some amazing pictures ...

Hope you are having a great week!
