Thanks for the updated! Glad you're okay and hope to hear from MerryCarey soon.

That's right, she was. Hopefully she is home already!!

I've got the scanner on and it sounds like one of the devices was found at the library. I'm not sure about the second.

Rachron I believe is southeast of Boston, I hope we hear from him soon, today is a holiday in Massachusetts, Patriot's Day, so I know a lot of people go into Boston on Patriot's Day for the Marathon and the Red Sox game which ended not too long before the explosions. I am not too familiar with the area where it happened.

I will try to find out where they will be. The hotels do not reserve all the rooms just for Elks; there are still rooms available for regular customers. Oh, man. I hope many of you can be there. This will be so much fun!!!
like I said , only a 7 hour drive for me so I will be there. Let us know and I will get on it right away. Thanks, I am excited already!

NOw they are saying there was an explosion at JFK public Library but not sure of the severity...I hate when things like this happene because when it first happens every news reporter says something different. But like Xmas said also that 2 more bombs were found but dismantled. I am glad Merrycarey was not at work today,, I hear today is like a holiday in Boston anyways, which could be a good thing that more people were at home.

It stinks we like in a world like this nowadays. Im glad there is still good in the world like Christmas!!! We need all the cheer we can get!
Brandi has not come home yet but she grew up in Boston,sure she will be interested in this story. MerryCarey do you work downtown?? they said they have shut down all cell service in Boston right now.

My prayers are with all who are in this area right now. My friend has a friend who is running in the marathon, have not heard yet how he is.
Watching CNN right now. Not good.

Hello everyone. I hope you are all having a great day so far. My youngest ended up coming home from school today because she didn't feel well and I decided to take her to the doctor. She was sick a couple of weeks ago and she has a cough that just wont go away. But the doctor said she sounds fine. Sometimes those coughs linger for awhile. Anyway, I was trying to catch up with some chores when my mother called and told me to put on the news. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the bombings in Boston. It's so sad.

Boston police said there was an explosion at the JFK Library 30 minutes ago, they don't know if it is related, but treating it as it is.
