So you lost power last night.  Parts of Lambertville did too.  Maybe around 8 or 9 and didn't come back until 4:30

No, our power was only off in the morning for the squirrel explosion.  We didn't get the storm near as bad as you did down there.  Last night around 10ish it did rain hard for a few minutes a couple of different times but no issues with power.

What was an issue down there was around 9:30 a tank of Anhydrous Ammonia started venting off.  I don't know if they had to evacuate anyone but it was keeping the FDs busy along with downed wires and trees on fire!  The ammonia leak was on Jackman between Erie and Temperance roads.

That's about when I fell asleep so didn't know when they got the power back on.

The area's on both sides of the "canal" took some damages from the nearly 7 inches of rain...

Interesting to hear of sink holes,  probably wash outs vs what they have in Florida!

This one is my favorite...   makes it hard to fight a fire when you have to dig out the hydrant first.  I wonder if the mains still have any pressure on them?

The marker bar sticking up is used in areas of deep snow to make it easier and quicker to find the hydrants in an emergency.  When we lived in Midland County the FD would go out in the fall and install them and then in the spring go back out and retrieve them.  Looks like they leave them on year around in Houghton.

Id do that if the country wasn't running giant deficits.

As it is I think the national debt is the bigger threat to the country.

Your attitude also reflects the theme that spending Government money here is good but elsewhere it is waste.

I just see the pork.  Sorry if you think that makes me unpatriotic.

How do you take the words I posted and change it to what you posted?

If that was my 'attitude' then that is exactly what I would have posted. 

Please do not try to put your words into my mouth.

As far as your patriotism goes, just like any 'emotion' (love for example) it's difficult for anyone but you to figure that out. 

If you're happy with your level of patriotism then it suits me.

I'm very, very satisfied with my personal level. 

Maybe we need a new thread...

is out 'freedom' worth what it is costing us?

Never did see the fit...  he's a conservative and they are a liberal school.   They needed someone strict and tough to come in - but now they want someone to coddle them and make the boogie man go away...

Sometimes the Coast Guard is also called for some fire fighting and investigation work!

My wife made fabric covered scrapbooks for all three of our kids while they were growing up.

That would be really cool :-) I admit I haven't done much in way of scrapbooking; one book was the first meeting between myself and a son I had placed for adoption and we were able to reconnect.  Two other books were from 2012 and 2013 when I made a trip to Vegas to see my dad (we had only reconnected in January 2011).  Since then unfortunately I haven't had much to scrapbook about but when I was unable to sell any of my "tools" I decided to get into card making at least so it was something.
