I went to work at the bar, and being the day it is, the place was pretty quiet (neighborhood joint). A few of the regulars are in, a little jovial holiday fun, joking about the old guys going to Cowgirls Inc. for the night etc...
The bartender notices some cops at the end of the street, goes out to see what's going down and comes back to tell us that each end of our block is cordoned off with patrol cars. Of course now everybody goes outside to see what the big deal is, and indeed, there are three to four patrol cars at each end of 10th Ave E and a Metro bus at the side of the street with its' hazards on.
Everyone goes back to their beers until a couple of minutes later two cops walk in the door and tell us that everyone has to leave due to the possibility of a bomb on the bus.
So now I'm sitting at a bar very far away from that bus.
