We live in East Lawrence and knew no good was afoot when insulation started falling from the sky.

Yes, it destroyed a building at Aberdeen Apartments. The same building that was rebuilt, and then burned down due to a lightning strike. :S

I ws panhandling on Mass when the sirens went off. We found a cubby behind the church at 10th and Vermont. Never came near and we had plenty of beverage to tie us over. No biggie.
