This has just been a crazy day. I went downtown to see what was left... and what other kind of damage has been done.

Looks like the surrounding businesses are safe from fire... so far... they are still there and making sure that they are safe from fire.  But as far as the smoke and water damage... it will probably be a few days before anyone knows the extent of that issue.

I know that some people have been making comments about that bar having some rough issues among with patrons.  That would be the people, and not the place.  Some people can be so insensitive when it comes to someone's livelihood.  There are now people without jobs, sources of income and some big insurance dealings.  This is a nightmare for some people.  And just blatant disregard for anyone that has that problem is inappropriate and insensitive.

The devastation is immense.  I feel so bad for the employees and the employees of the surrounding businesses.  They will be ok...but it's going to be a minute.
