It was hoped that this thing left some chunks on the ground since it was so big, and sure enough, they did find some small pieces in a pond.

I'm never up early enough, out at the right time, or looking the wrong way when these happen. There was one a while back that was reported and I was outside at the time in the backyard observatory, but I think I was staring at the computer screen and missed it all. I did get lucky recnetly when I was walking home from the bus after work. I saw one go across the whole sky and broke up over Tacoma (or at least in that direction). It was reported on the news. My comments are under 'Tom_renton' at the end of the article.
