The report from the Haliburton spokesman said they heard three explosions. Interesting.

Maybe an earthquake. We’ve had several there the last few months.

Could be a home gas explosion too, but for three explosions that causes you to think that probably wasn’t it.

What was the weather like in the region?

I think this will turn out to be, tho devasting, contained local, gas leak incident.

Does anyone think it might be the handiwork of Green-weenie Eco-terrorists?

I don't think a Chevy Volt can make it there from Austin on one charge.

Okay, a log cabin structure...

Whew, not a good thing to happen if family is in the house.

A volt carries it’s on generator and could make it.

a tesla, well.. maybe not.

If it's out in the boondocks, some folks have pretty big propane tanks.

A bunch of people on different twitter feeds talking about a train derailment in Alvarado. That makes the 6th different thing related to this explosion I have heard in the last 30 mins.

Yeah we have felt three quakes in a matter of days from those centered around Azle. You wonder if that is a good thing that pressure is being dissipated or portends a BIG event. Frenzied talk already of fracing and all that...

Talking about those 3 feet in dia, 10-12 feet long.

Ruptures and doesn't ignite until well mixed with air.

Think that would make a hell of a boom........Like a fuel air bomb.

Okay assuming the explosion was a log cabin, possibilities include:
  1. Meth lab
  2. Jealous Brick layers
  3. Terrorist training - suicide vests 101
  4. Terrorist supply explosion
  5. Incarnation of John Wilkes Booth confusing log cabin with Lincoln logs.
  6. Average Texan arsenal accidentally exploding
  7. Mob hit
  8. Gas leak explosion
  9. Idiot storing fertilizer indoors
  10. Lady Killer's explosive expert IBS incident
  11. Democrat explodes while trying to sign up on Obamacare.

Shook my place hard and I’m a number of miles away. No meth lab is going to do that. Major shock wave.

Would this possibly tie up traffic on 35? Not sure of the location/relation to 35. Thanks.

Bing Maps shows a large two-story Log-type home with a pool in the back, off the State Highway behind the other homes. Zoom out a bit, and along the Highway you’ll see a prepped area about 400 yards away that is a drill structure with storage tanks.
