Weird how it all happens huh? This morning about 15 minutes after I uploaded that gas well post, a nearby gas well blew up and killed two people. it happened in little old indiana township and not too far from where our pet sitter lives. yikes. it’s still burning tonight as they wait for an “expert” to come in –FROM TEXAS– to assess the situation. His flight was delayed apparently. Anyhow the county executive is wondering why on earth– with all the drilling going on–there is no local expert who can deal with this situation! Me too Dan me too. Sheesh. The footage showed them spraying foam on it this morning but now they’re saying that it’s really dangerous if there’s nothing burning off–at least with it burning off they don’t worry about it blowing up again. The news guys were quick to say that it’s not a marcellus well, but it is a shallow one and it’s pretty new too. For more info see here..
