Bostonians! Are you OK?

I follow news and it seems that things are getting worse every minute! I know Missy is from Boston. Everybody OK?

All of Boston and some of the surrounding towns are on high alert right now as one of the two suspects, brothers from Russia, has been killed and the other is on the run. There is a massive manhunt underway and everyone in those areas is urged to stay inside. Public transportation is shut down as are some streets and, businesses have been urged not to open until this is resolved. It is a very scary situation. I am originally from that area but am out of there now - not to say that a suspect could not come here to Cape Cod. However, it is highly unlikely as we are on a peninsula and there are only two bridges in and out of here. Not the best situation for someone who is trying to get away.
I, too, hope everyone in those areas will be safe. There has been enough maim and destruction. I know you have seen and lived through war, Marina, but this is a first for us in Boston. Be safe everyone.

I think the majority of us are in the suburbs of Boston, at 30-40 miles out from the center. Scary for the people in the neighborhoods. A lot of my hubby's employees live in those areas.

Side note: Our governor likes to shut down things. It makes him feel powerful. He does it a lot. He lives for snow days.

TTFN,
Pam

Marina -
Thanks for thinking of us. I don't live in Boston now, but that's where I went to graduate school. Fortunately, we're not accustomed to this level of mass evil -- except for notable exceptions, of course. It really is nice that people in the world care.

Hi, we are 20 miles out of the city so are safe but my work place is closed down,(not that I would be in anyway cause of my own pathetic accidents) and many of my colleagues and friends live in the area of the lock down. No one, no where in the world, anticipates these horrible events, but what's going on here is so foreign to our norm-- everyone is on edge... as you must know Marina. thanks for thinking of us.

Pam, I think it is always better safe than sorry. I am glad he shuts things down especially today.

Absolutely!

I just don't know how they will find him. There were so many buildings, alleys, etc. I am worry about collateral damage. All that artillery and explosives... Bullets travel through everything. If I lived in Watertown, I would be sitting in the bathtub right now.

TTFN,
Pam

This all new new to me that they have the guy on the run and two dead I'm going to have to watch the news. How did they find the other two? And they are from Russia? Hope everyone stays safe.

I just finished my pages with that story. Well, it really looks like war zone! I know what it means to have that kind of weapons in big city. You never know when somebody is going to loose nerves and pull trigger... Hope all goes well! Also hoppe that they will arrest that guy!
