Stop the press

Three lots of sirens tonight. The latter ambulance and fire truck at the synagogue, maybe someone within had a a medical problem, but now five marked police cars and even more unmarked cars at the same place.

Later edit: Seems to have not been serious enough to be reported in the media, so we may never know.

  2. Are your evac. bags stocked and ready to go? Is the synagogue close enough that you might be affected if there is a bomb?
    Hope everything is okay; waiting anxiously for updates. Not so anxiously that I'm staying up late though. I need my sleep.

    1. River, oh yes. If a bomb went off at 'the gog' I expect our glass would break, at least.

    1. No news reports, Sandra, so not serious I guess.

  4. Sigh. I hope all is well, despite knowing that for someone, or ones it isn't.

    1. EC, that is what I think when I see helicopters flying into the Alfred Hospital. Someone's life has just changed an awful lot, and it will affect friends and family too.

  5. Oddly, on the same evening as your post I observed the police to shut down Ocean Street Woollahra at the bottom of my street during peak hour and in pouring rain. That street has both a synagogue and a church as well as a number of consulates. The sight caused me to cancel our bridge night because we would not have been able to get through until the blockage was lifted. As with you there were no media reports to explain the activity.

    1. Victor, you were the last person I would suspect to make any sense of what I wrote, but it would not surprise me if there was threat call about synagogues in Australia's two largest cities.
