You know what makes it hard to fall asleep?
An loud explosion that makes the house shake.
That's what happened Thursday night at around 9:20. (OK, I wasn't trying to sleep yet, but it was close.)
Naturally, I turned to Twitter to find out what was going on, but for the first time I can remember, Twitter had no ideas to share.
It took about half an hour for the adrenaline to wear off, so I wandered around the house. Half an hour later, Twitter was still clueless, so i went to bed not knowing what had happened (like some sort of pioneer).
One of my coworkers is married to a fire fighter, and she found out what had happened for me. It turns out it was the police, detonating some explosives confiscated from a house in Centrepointe.
Maybe I should start following the Ottawa police on Twitter.
