True Business! 

During our lunch hour, KT and I walked outside to the nearby CVS store to grab a few things that I needed. When we came back, we found out that the whole building on the block had been closed down. Apparently, there were suspicious envelopes found in the cafeteria that were believed to be anthrax. So, no one could leave or enter. Arrived were all the police cars, fire trucks and the HAZMAT's. Even the road was closed off.
So, KT and I stood around for a few minutes and then took off shopping. Finally, after about 3 hours, they cleared out. Turned out that 2 people had skin irritants and were decontaminated. Turned out to not be anthrax but a blistering agent. You can read all about it at this link. Just when you thought it would never happen to you and it does. Never say never...
