Last week was a tragic week. And Friday was an exciting day, in that it's not every day that the entire city gets shut down and there's a massive manhunt going on in your own backyard!
On Friday morning the FBI found out that the bombers lived on Norfolk street in Cambridge, which is just 3 blocks from my place, so I walked outside and snapped a few pictures. Here's what it looked like:
These bad-ass FBI agents were planning a "controlled explosion." I counted over 50 agents.
There were about 20 news trucks parked outside, pretty much every news network!
Cambridge Police and the FBI asked residents to evacuate and closed off the street.

I usually watch the runners at the finish line on Boylston Street but this year I was stuck at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center recovering from the H1N1 virus and other complications. Here's a photo I snapped from last year.
Here's the view from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Dozens of news trucks and reporters camped out at the front entrance. Around a dozen bombing victims were treated here, and both bombing suspects were sent here.
And here's CNN reporting from Copley Square, just 3 blocks from the WordStream offices on 177 Huntington St.
And that's me on TV! Wearing the red jacket behind CNN's Don Lemon!
... OK, enough manhunt stuff. Thank you to our friends and clients for all the emails. Everyone here is fine, and our crazy week is over. But our hearts go out to everyone who was affected by the tragic bombing last week.
