Our temperature is up to 41 and the wind is swinging and not blowing near as hard. 

The vehicles driving down the road are starting to fly again :( :( :(

A lot of the standing water has gone down but there's still some in places that we don't usually have water.

CL said some schools are closed due to flooding, cannot get to students to pick them up in rural areas.  Very soggy here and looks like more rain....

The vehicles driving down the road are starting to fly again :( :( :(

Beat that suspension to an untimely death..  The Moron County way...  Amazing isn't it?  Amazing how stupid people are.  I call 'em 'banger's and clanger's'.   Had a newer Chevy come down the road yesterday about 60, throwing mud and water everywhere as the idiot bounced from hole to hole and the suspension sounded like a bucket of loose parts.

Not only does it destroy the suspension and sacks the shocks,  it packs the underside with mud and causes corrosion in areas that washing (if they do was the underside ever), which is doubtful, cannot reach.

I modified my pressure washer wand with a Street Ell at the end so I can aim the spray up under the body to wash it, which I do regularly.

I'd never buy a used car around here anywhere.  Used vehicles around here are most likely used and abused.  Very few drivers around here drive slow on dirt / stone roads.  We do and we pull over when we see an idiot coming fast.  We let them by so they can get to their destination for whatever emergency there is.  Gotta get home to pop that brown bottle quick.... ;D

Some idiots drive like that on the road behind the car dealer on Telegraph going to my gym just into Ohio.  It might be the worst road around.  I crawl down the road weaving inbetween pot holes.  Ocassionaly an idiot will fly past me going 60.

I drive that road as well.  I go maybe 15 in the hammer lane.  The curb lane is worse than the road out front of our house.  What Toledo should do is mill it and spread the millings, creating a smooth road.

Speaking of out front of the house, today, around noon, an MCRC truck belly scraped the road.  It's now a foot deep brown goo.  I find it amazing that the Moron County Road Commish is so stupid.  The employees must be short on overtime or something.  Senseless work by senseless people.  Total waste of tax dollars.

Took the pup out for a walk about 6.  As usual, one of the local idiots came flying down the road, through the goo, flinging it everywhere.  The pup and I narrowly missed being gooed...

I bet he picked up a couple hundred pounds of goo on the underside of his newer Dodge pickup truck.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Next group of whiners will be the local farmers.  Too wet to plant and too cold to germinate anything if they could get it in the ground.

For the first time in years I have a loon visiting in my lake. I was at the computer and heard the distinctive call of a loon. I have been watching it for the last hour. Hoping the geese won't chase it away.
