…and, oddly enough, on a night when our garbage disposal gave up its last breath, and we discussed going to Home Depot and getting a new one. It died at about 8:50, and we thought Home Deport probably closed at 9, so it would have been a rush to get there; we decided I’d pick up a new one on my way home from work today.
It was… very disturbing… to turn on the news in an hour and hear that there had been a shooting at Home Depot.
Even though I live in Akron, OH these days, I grew up in Dominion HIlls. That’s one mile from Seven Corners. My parents still live in same house there since 1947. I go to that Home Depot every time I go to see the Parents. Was there in April. My dad goes there every week. Scary.
I remember when they built that shopping center in the 50’s. Used to walk there from my house in the afternoon. It was the place to go if you were a teenager.
All our best from those of us living outside the DC area.
That’s where my husband is from, and his parents still live there. It’s kind of tucked away; there are no big stores or restaurants there.
I’m in Southern Frederick County, not that far from the Montgomery County shootings. My parents live close to some of those shootings (they’re in PG County) and my brother and his wife live in Falls Church, very close to last night’s shooting.
