"Honey did you leave the stove on? I smell gas and it isn't from me!"

FTA: "We are not going to speculate as to the cause of the explosion," Graham says.

This happened in Rockville (don't go back) so it probably increased their property value.

The water heater was the only thing left standing. Alright, that's a clue. Also, it happened at 3am. Now according to this star chart (new window), that means Perseus was the the constellation above the house. That is really two clues. First, there were Persians involved. Second, whatever is incubating in that water heater probably came from one of the planets in the Perseus system. Now, there is a planet circling a red giant star (new window) in that sector of the sky. So easily, whatever is in the water heater could require vast amounts of gamma and lemma radioactive energies to move from its larva into its chrysalis form. Hence, the explosion and the lemma radiation that would result in a two mile radius (gamma divided by ultra violet). But what about the Persians?

Well, we all know from recent news broadcasts that a certain big political event means that certain splinter cells might want to begin to incubate their alien hybrid agents for hatching by the next election. And that event is: Donald Trump's candidacy. Notice that the explosion happened in sector 11200, which is eight of the digits in the phone number for Trump Towers (new window). Also, Trump owns three casino resorts (new window), and this happened at 3am. What we see here is that the architectural codes for Trump assets actually refractively triangulate the light from stars in a recombinant wave. Trump is going to use the Perseus starlight to hatch hybrid voters to defend the USA much like Archidmedes would have defended Thermopylae from the Persians (new window) ("Persians" is an obvious code for democratic nominees, at least for a man who owns the Taj Mahal resort).

Remember people, according to the blast radius in the article, the adult form of this hybrid can only use it's energy powers in a 50 foot wide, 35 foot high, arc. We don't know if it is a shield ability or some kind of offensive ray. But the real lesson here is to use your Giger counters on your water heaters before Perseus leaves perigee and Taurus ascends (the Golden Bull of Wall Street is about to take the House Ascendant).

There was an incident like this in St Pete, Florida back in the early 90s when I used to live down there. A house had an uncapped gas line inside, left over from remodeling. The lady of the house went to light the oven, KABOOOMMM!!
It shook our house like an small earthquake, and we had fiberglass insulation falling in our yard from 30 some blocks away.
The house looked like a typical bomb photo, with only the staircase standing and a couple of chunks of outer wall.

One of my sisters has such a fear of something like this explosion happening to her home that she unplugs everything when it rains - even the air conditioning and refrigerator. She'll even leave work for a half hour or so to go home and unplug her appliances if it starts raining unexpectedly.

"Something similar happened to me early Sunday morning. As it turns out a number of seals somehow got into my house and boy did they make a mess! "

fun trivia: seals in a group are sometimes called a "harem"
y'all know how much us Aye-Rabs like harems!

This is pretty close to where I live. Like 5 minutes away... AND my dryer is gas and was not installed by a licensed contractor...
