128 goes boom

Gas tanker rolled over and exploded on Rte. 128 south near Highland Avenue around 5:30 a.m.; road shut, driver slightly injured, smoke visible from across the region.

Miss Von Schtoop was up early, went out for a drive, took photos along the way of a smoke ring from the accident drifting over Mission Hill, Cambridge, downtown and South Boston, including this montage from Southie:

Cool. I live right next to the Piano Factory. My bedroom window faces it.

I'm not even going to ask what the traffic looked like on 128 at that time.

I bet traffic wasn't bad.

Bob, my barber, says he got to the Rialto in Rozzie Square early this morning and it got really dark all of a sudden and he looked up and thought it was about to begin pouring. But then, just as quickly, the "cloud" was gone (no doubt headed for its date with destiny, that is, Miss Von Schtoop's roving camera in Mission Hill, Southie, etc.).

Around 630 this morning there was a very well defined black line on the horizon looking toward Rosi from Forest Hills. At first I figured it was some kind of storm cloud, then a tire fire.

That must have been one heck of an explosion to create that ring.
