    Its over the mountain, a couple towns away. Hearing all kinds of rumors as to what caused it, but hear from a reliable source there's more to it than meets the eye........
    I'll hold off with the details until they make it official.....but you ain't gonna believe it.....

    one dead, two survivors......
    ATF is on the scene now and it's being treated as a crime scene. It's ugly.....

    They are claiming there may have been a bomb.....a vendetta....from a perp who was supposed to be sentenced today for something or other. He never showed up at the hearing.......Not sure about the meth house thing, Nate. Hearing all kinds of stuff about it....

    Well, its just like we heard at work yesterday afteenoon. Crazy stuff.
    I think its going to turn into rival Meth labs or something. But it was definately a suicide bomb according to authorities...

    We had a house blow up in Ohio last year, propane line had a leak and the newly filled tank emptied into the house. Furnace lit and kaboom. We felt that boom 10 miles away, made me sit straight up in bed at 4am. Nothing left of that house either.

    What's amazing in some of the house gas explosions is that people inside survive.

    We drive by there every Sunday on the way from Patton to Hollidaysburg. This is the first I heard anything about this. (I guess I should read some local news sometime. I get all my news off the internet so I don't often know what's going on locally.)

    If you are gonna be in a gas explosion you would prefer to be in the center or at the flash point. The real power is at the outer edge of the explosion.

    Holy cow. I think I would rather put up with a few drive by's with small arms than a bomb.

    Reading between the lines, the Shaner guy ratted out his buddies, one of which blew up his house. One thing that sticks out to me is that the prosecutor is related to the defense lawyer. Small town?
