Art has just posted about his current situation, and unfortunately it's nothing positive...(four posts made over a 10 minute period combined below):
"There has been a explosion at our house tonight! Nobody hurt (I hope) it was a fire extinguisher, it just blew up (nobody in the room) but the house is beyond a mess. Inhaled a bunch of that stuff, like a white powder, not feeling so hot. Fire dept was here. More when I can. Good lord, we just remodeled. I think I got the most exposure but the girls got some as well. A fire extinguisher is supposed to save you not kill you! It was in my radio room with about 50K of radio gear that may be toast along with my lungs. It had been in the same spot for months, always at about 70 degrees, Fire guys said it was defective, lots of pictures, I will post in time, now VERY tired."
Whatever implications this may have for any radio plans Art may or may not be working on, certainly we should all wish them well--and be glad that none of them were seriously or directly hurt!
