So, the cops have cordoned off my block, and the bomb squad has detonated at least two bombs, and they've found about 4 more, according to what my roomie has heard. Part of the block has been evacuated, but they're letting my roomies stay in the house, at least.

I'm still at work, and staying until they leave, because otherwise I have to seek even more reduced parking several blocks away, then walk in and be escorted to my own house. Did I mention that I am mobility impaired?

Yeah, suckage. All because some asshole decided to play amateur chemist.

Final update: The cops finally let us in at around 11:30 pm. I got to hear the last "Kaboom"

Wowee. Glad you're all ok . . . hope you got to go home soon after.

Just reading this now. Hoping everyone's safe and that you were able to get back home okay. Asshole sounds like a right whackjob, from the Mercury report.

By training I am a non-amateur chemist, and anyone who makes explosives in his home is an idjit. Is difficult enough to make high-energy compounds stable with reactors and processes specifically designed for that purpose. Is next to impossible when one is working at the kitchen sink. The stuff often goes unstable and detonates spontaneously. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Glad no one got hurt in this case.
