along highway 35, there. We got an email from him soon after the explosion. "That is where I frequently stop for dinner, and would have been there at that time, had I been working. One of my southbound friends chose to skip dinner there tonight because he was in a hurry to get home for the birth of a grandchild. A northbound driver friend had pulled off the highway just on the north side of town, checked his truck, and ate a quick sandwich. He was just pulling out when the explosion occurred, and he sure stepped on the gas!"
The Czech bakery there is a family favorite. I hope it's ok!
