Locked Down


If you saw the news this morning, you know that things heated up in Cambridge last night.
The Boston Marathon bombers lived here.  One is dead and other is on the loose. We are
presently under lock down, advised not to leave our homes and all forms of public
transportation have been shut down.  Hopefully all of this madness will come to an
end soon and everyone can get on with the process of getting back
to our new normal.  Thank you again everyone for your e-mails of concern.

  15. I thought if you when I saw footage of Cambridge this morning. My brother-in-law drives for a large trucking company in Watertown and has been in a lockdown. In fact his truck was stopped and completely searched and he was sent back to the yard. He drives one of those gargantuan flatbeds around the city. They actually used mirrors, looked under the truck on the axles. It's been a very crazy vacation week.

  19. Scary stuff! I have been watching the news on and off hoping I don't spot your house in the background of all this madness.

  20. I was up all night following after being awoken by the helicopters overhead. Too close for comfort. Going a bit stir crazy at this point. Hope this ends soon - with no more innocent casualties.

  21. Been thinking of you and all the others in this area-stay SAFE!

    Worked half a day and home now to watch CNN incessantly.

    I'm amazed at the power of social media( some of the important photos that led authorities to these heinous people were taken on cell phones and posted on FB)

    It's so surreal to see Beantown look so empty on the news reports.

    Hope they wrap this up ASAP-and for everyone's sake, with no more loss of life.

  22. My tv is on 24-7 watching as this unfolds. We have our tragedy too here in Texas and it's just one of those very sad times in our world. I cannot even imagine being on lock down! I hope you have lots of food and water...it could be a while! I hope not. Crazy stuff!

  24. Wow, it must be surreal and a little scary. I hope they resolve this soon. It is so senseless and so horrible. I can't imagine how the families of the victims must all be feeling. The whole city must be in shock.

    Thinking of you. xo T.

    Glad to get home and read that you are OK.
    I'm now watching the News and I can't believe this is real.
    I can't imagine what this day must have felt like for you and everyone else who has been locked down.
    Stay safe.

  36. I will never understand one human wanting to hurt another let alone when people come together to celebrate anothers achievements. Glad you're safe Steve and celebrate they caught the other guy.

  38. Although the nightmare has ended, my thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those that are no longer with us and those that will be forever scarred by this senseless act of violence.

  39. Like many others, the drama of yesterday's events kept me with either an eye to the TV or an ear to the radio. I'm so glad that part of it has reached a conclusion without anyone else losing their life. What an incredibly frightening time that must have been!!!! I just can't imagine! I commented to my husband this morning that even the "regular criminals" were scared enough to stay indoors! :-) Our Kansas City Royals are in Boston for what was to have been a 3-game series, so those of us here in KC watched and worried for their safety as well. I was SO relieved when they finally decided to call off the game! No point in risking lives for a game that can be played later!

    So glad to know you and your are safe & sound! Best wishes as you guys start the healing process.

  40. Fortunately he has been captured, because he would have continued to hurt and kill people. Unfortunately, it will never be over for the victims and their families. Sometimes it is impossible to understand us humans. I am so happy you are safe, Steve.

  41. Nineteen years old, what a tragedy the whole thing is, and so utterly pointless. Glad that you are fine and can now get back to your usual routine.

  43. Incredible week.

    You were on my mind as well. The Blogger World and the Real World are connected. So relieved to hear you are safe and recovering from your traumatic week.

    Best wishes from another Blogger friend,
