Last night (probably around 7 but there was so much else going on I kind of lost track of times) Dundee FD was dispatched back out to the site of the original transformer fires yesterday morning.  Apparently there was another one burning last night.  It wasn't clear if it was a different one or one that DTE replaced yesterday!

Wondering if someone has a large 'grow' operation going on in the immediate area ;) ;) ;)

How does a fuel tank just 'fall off' a semi tractor? 

Just happened on Dunbar just east of Dixie...  sounds like it must be by the cement plant but they didn't say whose semi it is.  Doesn't sound like any other problem other than the tank is off the truck and laying in the road and leaking :( :( :(

It's at the other end of the block close to the old entrance to the quarry.  Fuel is running into the storm drain.  No word yet if it's diesel or gasoline though.

It's a 163 gallon tank and it 'was' full and a 'substantial' amount has leaked out of the tank already!  I wonder where that storm drain runs to?

The road commission will be there 'eventually' to sand the road...

sounds like they finally have figured out which drain that catch basin drains to...

the trucking company is getting an Environmental company lined up to handle the clean up!

I sure do hope their insurance was up to date :o :o :o

I wonder if the professor is playing golf in Dundee this morning?

Dundee FD is out on a rescue call for a man struck by a golf ball :o :o :o

I'm not a golfer so don't have any idea what the odds are of that happening but for as many golf courses as there are in the area you don't hear many calls for it.  I hear more for possible heart attacks I think.

We drove down Dunbar last night and you could see all the 'kitty litter' stains on the road and it was right next to a catch basin for the storm drain.  I could smell diesel fuel in the air too!

My guess would be, especially since Prof has had back to back holes in one displaying accuracy, that he hit Brian B since they have been sparring on here regarding City politics.  They have been known to be on the same course at the same time.

Since they are partners it would have to be an assault with a club wouldn't it?

That would be counterproductive to winning a league.

Come on now......watch how those two spar on here, one is just as competitive as the other.  I'm thinking a round of golf between those two more resembles a Texas Death Match as seen on the wrestling channel.

I'm guessing when they are playing they are giving it to their opponents?

 ;D

I would say Prof and Brian are pretty good friends.....

Just like Ron Reagan and Tip O'Neal.

LOL   enjoy the comments...

Brian and I are not all that far apart in politics for the most part - and we have an agreement,
no discussions on the golf course :-)

Classic example of how to each have your own opinion and still be friends. Maybe you guys could share a little of what you are smoking with the rest of us !

He told me that agreement was made in order to guarantee you wouldn't feel a 3 iron on your knee during your back swing.
