Seriously thought we had been nuked…

It was pitch dark and I was cooking dinner. Svetochka and I heard a deep rumble and I ran outside. Night had become day, northern sky was lit up from east to west…

I yelled for Sveta and as we watched the fireball grow. I then tried to figure out the safest place for us to weather the shockwave…

For about 30 seconds, I truly thought that Moscow had been nuked and that this was it….it was direct north of us and encompassed the whole sky…

I soon realized that it was not such a terrble thing as a nuke and Sveta then called her mom and found out life was good in Moscow…

But, then forest fire came to mind…

It roared like a freight train rummbling at full speed ahead…

It was from a place about 40 to 50 kilometers from us…

Gas main explosion….hope everyone in the other village is okay…

Hell itself opened up tonight…
