Blasting



Yesterday they came by and took photos of our place, the Bombers i call them, I asked the guy what he was doing and that is what he told me, they want to make sure there will be no damages once they blast. I told them they never did it before when the put the cable company in next door.
So anyway at 7:15 am this morning they came and knocked on the door saying that they were going to be blasting in 20 minutes. Well here they are preparing for it.

And here is the blast , boy we felt it in the kitchen almost like it was under us. wonder if it did move the building . Now make sure you click on the photo for this last one, because you can see the after math of the powder, it actually looked more yellow than what it shows in the photo.But you see that reddish hue?

Hi Lilli & Nevada, here I am trying to recapture your last posts on my weekly visit, and I get a blast... ;) Glad to see that you were not harmed... ;))
Nice pictures!
Thanks for your comments at Blogtrotter. I’m still strolling around the streets of Sofia there.
Have a great weekend!

That Sonic is sure coming in with a boom! That's kinda scary and a little too close for comfort. Great pictures!!

Oh no! I'd have been a nervous wreck!

I can't believe they did any work that made a disruption to households before 8:00 AM! That is pure nonsense. Glad they warned you and hope everything at your place is fine.

That is disturbing, to say the very least. What are they presuming to grow in the crater they made?

Why are they doing this?
I've never seen this work carried on at any building sites over here.

I hope no ill effects are to be found in your builds structure.

Hello Nevada and Lilli.
Thank you for visiting my Blog.
Nice photo's from The blasting. Why are they doing that. Are they looking for oil perhaps?
Have a nice weekend.

Hiya Lilli! I'm also very curious why they blasted. What for? I've never seen this before either. So very curious. Curious indeed.

So the Sonics Cafe is opening with a real blast. That last picture is good. I can see the yellow in the air and the reddish hue. MB
