|Boston, and me
||[Apr. 15th, 2013|07:15 pm]
I was riding the T and there were announcements about a "police action" and that we couldn't get off at certain stops. A guy on the train said something about a bomb but seemed uncertain if it was that. After doing shopping (really, I didn't know what was going on for sure and all the stuff seemed to be towards Back Bay) and when I was finally heading on the way to go home and I was on the Red Line we were told that we couldn't get off at Park Street or Downtown Crossing. I got off at the MGH stop to walk to the Blue Line and saw a number of news vehicles at the hospital, including a couple that weren't from Boston stations. I ended up walking with a guy who needed to know where the Orange Line was; he was from the South Shore and didn't know Boston that well. After pointing out where to go, I went to the Government Center stop and there were police preventing anybody from going in, but I was told I could go to the State stop. On the way home there were more of the "If you see something, say something" announcements. At no time did they say anything about a bomb, just that there was a "police action."|
And then I get home and find out about multiple bombs, two near the finish line of the Marathon and an incendiary device at the JFK Library. Unnerving, and it'll probably be a while before we know what really is going on, what's behind all this.
