The Hazards of Working in Boston

This happened right outside my office building yesterday.

And although all the surrounding streets were blocked off with yellow CAUTION tape, my building wasn't evacuated. Kinda makes a person feel just so.....safe and secure, ya know?

It was definitely a distraction as we listened to the sirens blaring, watched the bomb squad in action, saw the dozens of police trying to keep order, observed the firefighters hooking up their hoses to the hydrants, and noticed everyone else being evacuated.

Err....I mean I kept my nose to the grind and was verrrrrrry productive. As usual.

Ahhhh, yes, it's so good to be back to work in the big city!

Hey I hear ya! My building has been evacuated because some nut job called in a bomb threat ON US. And my building is right behind a federal building and since 911 we are sort of on whatever alert they are on, since whatever happens to them would affect us to, being so close.

Fun in the city...

Scary. Glad it was a hoax and you're okay.

Wow... $40? Hardly seems worth the hassle!
