explosives

wow! i just have to share with you this email that was sent out around campus a few minutes ago:

Faculty, staff and students may hear a large explosion around noon on Friday, July 18, as 500 pounds of explosives are detonated at Fort Jackson as part of a training exercise involving the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) and the S.C. Department of Education. Officials expect the explosion to be heard well beyond Fort Jackson’s boundaries.

if they expect us to hear it at USC – a good 15 minutes away from the fort, i can only imagine what it will be like at my house – a mere 3 minutes from the fort!

bing, bang…BOOM!
