thanks gang........yeah one of those guys, who'd give a dope fiend chance after chance, to work and get good pay (he'd always pay too much), even feed and give them places to stay, had converted his barn into a "bunk house", to help homeless folks, put in a garden for them to tend (if they chose) to help with food, and paid them, to do stuff, so they'd feel good about themselves. Took in stray animals.......very spiritual man, we had many long, discussions. very well read.


could use a fucking hug, yeah..........

MOTHER FUCKIN FUCK!!!!!!!!!!!


.

At 4:58 a.m. this morning, Lombard’s Acting Village President Bill Ware declared the Village of Lombard in a state of emergency due to flooding and high water.

The Village of Lombard has received approximately five inches of rain during the last 24 hours, which has led to flooded roads, ponds overtopping their banks and hazardous conditions. The weather forecast anticipates rain throughout the morning, which will lead to additional high water and flood conditions.



had to move all my shit upstairs.. the floor drains were pour up water in the basement.. sort of contained in the laundry room with tons of towels and blankets.

fuckin fuck. and still 12 hours until the rain system clears out.......... thankfully, only TWO inches expected.

if everything stays how it is.. without the situation changing.. its not so bad, just really annoying.

if it gets worse.. thatll suck but my stuff is OK.. and i am ok.

flood warning ends in 6 hours.
rain will clear out in 12..

worst case scenerio i stay in a hotel tonight.

best: the situation stays as it is.

rain has been calmed down for about 45 minutes.. which is awesome.

but still

FUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!

FUCK.

Image
putting a big huge stack of tiles.. with a towel under it.. and a frie extinguisher on the drain helped... mainly contained in this back room.

could be a lot worse, thankfully i was awake and prepared

already got my hotel room reserved.. gonna head up there in a few hours

buncha bullshit i tell ya

my area got 8-10+ inches of rain in the past 24 hours.......... all of chicago area 5-10 inches

its insane rain and.. we've seen lots in the past

ive never seen anything like it..

the sewer down the block was gushing like crazy maybe 6 inches high tons of water.... everyones pumps running constantly filling the gutters with water even tho the rain subsided for now

downtown of my village is impassable

thankfully the hotel has no flood issues.. and im pretty sure i can get there

I hope things will be settled by tomorrow, and you don't have any more fucking rain.

So fucking sorry to hear about your friend, Ygmir. {{hug}}

And shit, lemur, that fucking sucks! Three cheers for your being awake and prepared, given the conditions that could have been a much bigger fucking mess. Here's hoping the weather stays moved on and you get the chance to drain and dry stuff with minimal annoyance.

FUCK! Just found out my friend Julia Vogel was murdered, last January, in Louisiana. I'm a little upset, that the only picture I now have of her is a fucking mugshot. Now I know why your name kept popping up in my head a few months ago, Julia..see you on the flipside.

Fuck, Tom, that's awful. I've lost a husband and a sister to accidents, with other people involved, other people who were playing fast and loose and driving after drinking, although neither was above the limit, and I know something of grief. But murder, malice or hatred or anger involved, instead of carelessness and arrogance...
I'm so fucking sorry.

There's a special edge to murder, and what it does to people.
Living here, I've known too many people it's happened to.
You can actually recognize recent family of victims by their eyes.


I thought I'd had quite a fucking night of it, with a CT, xray, ekg, neuro test, and triple bloodwork including a line run with a scalpel, all by midnight.
You know, the usual saturday night nonsense.
Then, on the way home pulled someone out of their car right before a freight train hit it.
We stood there in the rain and watched, as it pushed the car out of sight down the tracks.
She was in shock, I think, still wanting to save the car.
I had one fuck of a time getting her to leave the car.

Standing by that car, in front of the locomotive, about the height of the wheels of the train, I had to look up to even see the cab.

So what have we learned, boys and girls?
Don't cut your wrists, it fucking hurts, even with a scalpel.
Don't fuck with trains.
And whatever I've been doing, don't fucking do that next weekend.

So fucking predictable, Simon.
They don't do news here on weekends unless someone dies.
They may have gone out there, don't know.
Wmc knows about it, and wreg memphis does too.

I'll indulge you anyway.
It was a bnsf train going east at about 3 am at Highland and Southern Avenue.
The mpd number is 901/545-2677, precinct is 901/636-3000.
You'll have to look up the bnsf number.
I'm sure they know about it, since it was stuck to the front of their train.
The car was a Honda, no idea what model, and the girl was cute.
Just another saturday night, Simon.
Had worse.

gyre,

Don't be sorry about the car. 'Things' can be replaced. Human beings can't. You got her out and saved her life. That's absolutely admirable. If nobody else has said it to you, I say it now......THANK YOU!

You just earned mega karma points. Pity that the points and a quarter won't buy a cuppa joe these days.

I appreciate it, Rhino.
I wasn't in any risk though.
It was an eplayan in the news awhile back for kicking out the windshield in a burning semi and pulling someone out.
Now that's impressive!

I can't remember the name, but they posted about it once.
