Several drone photos and videos of the flooding along Lake Erie yesterday. 

Posted by Craig Sauer.  Some may remember that back in the 'good old days' Craig was a fairly active member here.

Wow, I don't think I've seen it that high since I moved here.

Time to get the Army Corp back here to raise those sea walls they finally tore down a few years back when the lake levels were lower...

Several crashes about daybreak on both 23 and 75.  Many were just cases of sliding off the road.  A few involved multi vehicle crashes and I've heard them shutting down the freeway a couple of times to get wreckers in place to retrieve a vehicle.  Apparently none of these drivers had any idea that the roads might be slippery at some point :-\ :-\ :-\

A crash just now pushed a vehicle into a ditch that is still full of water from the weekend storm.

A pole barn on fire at S. Stoney Creek and Exeter Road.  Sounds like they called it in from the auto salvage place. 

There are several barns on the property but I think the only pole barn is the one fight next to the road.

LMR and Exeter responding and Ash on standby at this point.

Nicki Haley: She could be a contender for President in 2020 so she probably won't last long in her current position.

Not sure if it's news or not but at 10AM this morning, I drew a New Mexico Unit 127 Bull Elk Tag.  I'll be heading to NM in October.  It's an outfitted hunt on horseback, 2 on 1 guided, all inclusive, just pay the bucks and hunt.  4 of us are going, 3 from Michigan, one from Indiana.

I did say BUCKS....  Elk is never cheap.

I'm sure the party of D would attempt a smear if she ran.
