#AtoZChallenge - X is for eXplosion

February 3, 2023 - Train carrying toxic chemicals derails in East Palestine, Ohio. First responders intentionally burned toxic chemicals to prevent an uncontrolled explosion.

March 24, 2023 - Chocolate factory explosion in West Reading, Pennsylvania kills seven people. One woman survived by falling into a vat of liquid chocolate.

Did you get it right?

Here’s the teaser for letter Y. Remember, it’s an event from 2022 or the first 3 months of 2023. Comment on something related to the answer without giving the exact answer. Let’s play!

  1. I'm not sure what there was to get right or wrong here. I must have missed something. BUT! The chocolate factory is Palmer, best known for Easter bunnies (the big chocolate ones that take days to finish). And, in support of the company, many local stores sold out of their Easter Palmer chocolate this year. (No one really knew how else we might offer support to the company and those who suffered and died.)

    The train was the next state over, not very far from my best friend. Her whole family and circle of people were very worried.

    I definitely know about both of your X topics.
