Just a quickie because I have to see the doctor at 1:30 today. My leg feels better but it still gets fatigued when I stand and walk for about 4 hours. I'm hoping for another week of a reduced, restricted shifts. 20 hours instead of 40.
If anybody watched the fireworks from Boston last night. CBS really did a strange thing. They never reported that there was a brief but severe thunder and lightning storm. Everybody in front of the stage (100,000 to 250,000 people.) was ordered into a nearby tunnel because of the lightning. There were several lightning strikes in the area including two people who were hit while standing near a grill. This was not on the Esplanade but in the Boston area. What CBS showed at 10pm was a tape from the previous nights rehearsal concert. They never informed national viewers. If you were watching locally, the show actually starts at 8pm. So local viewers were informed that everybody in front of the stage was evacuated into a nearby tunnel. Everybody on the other side of the river, another 100,000, 200,000 (who really knows) were evacuated to a local mall in Cambridge. I do find it hard to believe they got that many people to got into a mall. By the time the fireworks started everybody was back and that was shown live.
Esplanade Evacuated In Boston « CBS Boston
The local CBS station had informed us that the 1812 Overature shown was from the previous night. It does make me wonder about the news in general. They can decide what to tell you and not to tell you. Walter Cronkite must be spinning in his grave.
OK it's time for me to get ready for the day.
I'm outta here.
