Haifa Street

The battle for Haifa Street is underway again today. The explosions went on all night and throughout the President's State of the Union speech.

Then all hell broke loose. There was tank and machine gun fire and helicopters were circling.

It woke most of us up before dawn and this being Baghdad, this being war, and everything being a little surreal, the British security boys and I decided to go find the new Hoover I brought in from Amman and vacuum all of the floors.

Then we decided to clean the kitchen.

When the sun rose, and the mortar rounds began, we were just about finished.
