When I arrived at work, there were a couple of emergency vehicles at the end of the block and my co-worker (she generally opens on Mondays) was walking out of the library. I parked and got out of the car (with my umbrella -- because it was pouring).
I was told that we would be unable to open the library because a construction crew a block away (tearing down the old junior high school building) had hit a gas line and they didn't want anyone in the area.
So I went home to wait.

The library opened 2 hours late . . . quite the interesting beginning to my day!
