In Russia it is said that chickens are milked, and cows carry eggs. (A mockery of those who believe ridiculous rumors.)

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…
