From StrategyPage comes this:
About 1:30 P.M. Dublin Pub time (6:00 P.M. local time) we were going about our daily business when we heard the tell-tale "Pop" and "Whoosh" of an incoming rocket's booster engine kicking in followed by an explosion in the distance. There is a scramble as everyone reaches for their IBA and helmets then heads for the nearest bunker.
So, cower fearfully waiting for more incoming? Nope. After all, these are U.S. troops.
Craig pulled the crossword puzzle he had saved from a Stars and Stripes out of his notebook and we got to work waiting.
At 13:39, we heard another "Pop" and "Whoosh" followed by an explosion even further distant. Right on schedule, my radio came to life with "Net Call,Net Call. The next rounds you hear will be outgoing."
Read the whole thing.
Craig and I slept fine though because we figured out that the 8 letter word for "Formal Meeting" is Symposia.
As some well-know blogger might opine... "Heh!"
