Breaking news... another one of my family's chemical plants has just exploded.

I do not know any details, but I hope my friends and family are ok. Due to the fire last July, we recently did a full security check of all our buildings, and verified that all safety procedures were being followed. So, I am at a loss to explain what happened.

Oh god. I think this might be the end of the company. I'm not worried about the money as much as the employees. Think good thoughts for us... love you all.

Update: I-80 is closed down due to smoke, messing up traffic all over NE Des Moines. No casualties, just one minor injury. I am so relieved.
