I wouldn't listen or watch Shep Smith even if these explosions were going off in his pants.

Well, of course, we call it a manhole. We can’t call it a “woman hole” because y’all would confuse it with a “vuh-jy-nuh.”

;p

Who’s “Shep?” Somebody’s dog?

(If you are posting a story based only on a Shepard Smith story, well, let’s just say I would never do that. Too many people have been burned by his incredible inaccuracies.)

Who knows what’s gonna blow in the gut of the city?

Transformer fire?

I recommend Folks check out Strip the City on Science or Discovery channel if they get it. Lots of stuff lies below the surface.

Best guess: Electrical/Electric Transformer fire. Those things get over-loaded in the cold and they go BOOM!

Seen it happen in downtown Chicago several times.

These things were always blowing up in NYC, even years ago. The other fave was when the steam would simply blow a manhole cover off and collapse the street. I think some unfortunately person was killed in one of these explosions a few years ago.

Few people know this, but there is a huge network of Con Ed (or whatever they call it now) steam pipes under Manhattan streets. They supply steam to the big buildings for heating, etc. Sometimes the streets get so hot the asphalt is sticky and melting, even in the winter.

Yeah, I suspect as such. There was one earlier on Friday, in a different area. Perhaps the cold and ice are playing out for the damage.
