I looked out the window and what did I see...


Definitely nothing that looked like popcorn. This morning, I was just finishing getting ready when I heard a huge bang and our whole house shook. I immediately ran outside with Wade because I was sure a plane had crashed in our backyard. Turns out one of the refineries by our home exploded. There was a power surge that somehow caused the other refinery by our home to start smoking too. We were a little shaken up, but are happy to report that we are fine, as is our home.

I'm so glad that you and your home both survived!

That sounds like it was a pretty scary deal.

Oh my goodness. Glad you are okay. Did it cause a lot of pollution or smoke?

Turns out there was a power failure at several of the SLC area refineries on Wednesday. But they were back online by the end of the day.
I wouldn't worry about an explosion getting outside of the gates - they control that stuff pretty well and its just oil, not nuclear stuff or anything. But the loud sounds can really shake things up!

I guess one home was rocked off its foundation and as a result, condemned. Others had windows broken out and steel door frames caved in. You said your home shook for about 5-6 seconds. SO glad that you and your are fine...and your new home also!
