The unexpected surprises

... footage they captured a large plume of smoke and people scratching at their eyes and throats. YIKES!

I'm sure Tim awoke the next morning assuming the worst was behind them. Laura and I were going to head to Italy and he and the kids were back to home for work/school via NYC.
