X is for Texas oil refinery explosion

This year's theme for my A-to-Z Blogging Challenge is Significant Events from 2021 and the first 3 months of 2022.

At the end of today's post is a teaser for tomorrow's Y post.  Enjoy! 

On December 23, 2021, an explosion occurred at one of the largest refining and petrochemical facilities in the United States, in Baytown Texas, near Houston.

Full disclosure - I was unable to find a photo of the actual 2021 refinery explosion that I could use on my blog without violating copyright, so the above photo is an oil refinery explosion in Texas in 2005.  Close enough, right?

The explosion and fire occurred at approximately 2am and injured 4 people.

Here's a teaser for tomorrow's Y post.  Remember, to avoid spoiling the answer for the next blog visitor, please comment on something related to the answer without giving the actual answer.


  1. Craig again on another bad google day

    Yeah, in Texas they can build fertilizer plants, or oil plants in residential neighborhoods, which is a recipe for disaster to me.

    Tomorrow could be shades of Martha and the Vandellas, or a reason to learn to take three minute showers.

    1. Sounds like your guess for the Y day is right on!
