That one time the chemical plant caught on fire...

So, I live in a rather small town right outside of Dallas, called Waxahachie. Not many people know about it, but today we made national news. Around 11am a chemical plant a few miles from my school caught on fire. It continued to stay on fire and billow the blackest smoke I've ever seen, for about 6 hours. It was crazy to see; it felt completely surreal. Classes were cancelled and we were sent to our rooms/homes & told not to go outside. Scary right?? My roommate and I lined the bottom of our door and windows with towels and shut our ac off and were basically stuck... all day. So I did what any sensible girl would do, I baked cookies, made tea and knit while watching season two of Felicity^_^ 

Fortunately everyone at the plant was fine and we have not experienced any sort of sickness from the air, granted I haven't gone outside since noon.  Other than that, a pretty normal day. How was your Monday? Was it awful, as most Mondays try to be? I sure hope not! Here's to happier healthier Tuesday!
