Jean Poquette-Seidl panics with her head out the window as her house fly's into the air in this dramatization of what could have happened.
The leak was apparently not in her home but blocks away, the leak was so large though that all the neighbors thought that there was a leak in their own home and Poquette-Seidl along with dozens of her neighbors called in the mysterious smell out doors. When questioned about the incident Poquette-Seidl mentioned she was grateful that the leak was contained so fast and that none of her equipment was involved with the mishap. Poquette-Seidl: "I know that if I indeed had a leak just one phone call to my excellent brother in law Mike would have had him here in minutes plugging the leaking gas and solving the problem." As it turned out Poquette-Seidl was able to rest easy after the Public Service crew fixed the leak and restored gas to the customers affected. The leak apparently was not in her home but blocks away and wafted over in her direction. Relieved that the leak was not at her residence, Poquette-Seidl celebrated by cooking a couple of corn dogs for her dinner and consumed an alcoholic beverage while eating them.
