So this bit of chaos happened just about 1km from our home yesterday afternoon and the smoke and chemical smells was so thick that by 1:30 am you could still smell it. A truck carrying steel and insect killer aerosols hit another truck and 2 cars and exploded. This morning, the highway is still closed but the bridge has re-opened.
Our quiet little neighbourhood was all of a sudden very busy as the traffic authorities relayed traffic through the area. This morning we have sore throats, sore chests and blocked noses. The kids seem to take it a bit better than the adults ( I closed their windows). I really hope we all feel better by this afternoon.
