Update: April 17th –
The random decision to walk in the street and eventually outside the yellow tape ended up being key here. I had no idea what was up ahead. Anderson Cooper with a pressure cooker. So I guess I made a guest appearance on CNN’s new live Boston cooking show… uh-haha, not funny, I know. But wait til you see Erin Burnett and Jake Tapper yukking it up in the next one.
I was 140 yards [I’ve revised this to 125 yards, I thought initially the blast was more in front of bank of America] from the first bomb when it went off. I turned and saw the dust cloud coming at me as I heard the second one go off. Weird day. Have tons of video of the area from Saturday and this morning.
