Holy crap- Brooklyn Record reports that a manhole cover exploded on Clinton and Greene last night. I actually did hear it happen. I was sitting at my kitchen table, and the noise made me jump from my chair. It set off all the car alarms on Waverly Ave. I can only see the Waverly-Greene intersection though from my window, but I kept looking out to see what might have happened.
It's a post-9-11 reaction. Every time I hear a loud noise, I get nervous. Hopefully everyone is OK.
