I've been reading Pepys Diary online for a few years now, and today added the twitter feed. Because today is 2nd September, and in the diary we have reached the year 1666:

Jane called us up about three in the morning, to tell us of a great fire they saw in the City.

Oh brilliant, thanks for the Twitter link, I've been reading the diary but didn't know about that.

Weird synchronicity for me: it's like the Station fire and Mt. Wilson, where Hale and Hubble did their stuff, only much, much larger in terms of loss. (Also, hurray, it looks like Mt. Wilson's forty acres of fancy + relatively historic equipment will probably survive.) I've been reading the LJ feed but hadn't seen mention of the fire yet--met your post first.
