Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

the quad cities is starting to panic. There is over four feet of water frozen up river which is a record and if there is a sudden melt......record floods are being predicted......great......four miles of road, and I can no longer get in the bobcat to move debris......we have a bit of bad luck starting to snowball.......being alive however trumps everything.

folks this climate change is going to get scary.

my wife is saying NO.....NO......No, but I want to build a portable stairs with handrails which will allow me to walk up into the seat, and then get out. I just do not have any muscle left to move my skeleton, but hell.....I am crazy and I now have a new goal.

the army corps of engineers needs to be capturing these flood waters and pump the water to the southwest. this should have been started ten years ago. infrastructure which is not a wall.....totally ignored.

East, Midwest Spring Flooding May Be More Widespread This Year Due, in Part, to What Happened Last Year


Spring flooding might be a more widespread problem along rivers in the Midwest and Northeast in 2019 due to a number of accumulating factors over the past several months.

The combination of melting snow, additional rain and snow and rising temperatures all play crucial roles in determining how widespread and severe spring river flooding is from March through May in the Midwest and Northeast.

You're beyond funny, and yeah, also slightly nuts. Goals are good, but maybe some are not meant to actually be fulfilled. You think?

Between fire, flood, water level rise, hurricane, tornado, earthquake, et al -- no one is entirely safe. Yet people have always loved to disparage others for their choice of residence:

You shouldn't live in the low country!

You shouldn't live near that river!

You shouldn't live on that island!

You shouldn't live in that sinkhole-prone area!

You shouldn't live in the Tornado Belt!

You shouldn't live near that fault line!

You shouldn't live in that forested area!

You shouldn't live on that tsunami-prone coast!

Etc., etc.

People should just shut the hell up about others' choices and accept that the world needs serious climate change regulation, and this country needs National Disaster Insurance, since someone else's misfortune this year could be yours in the next.

Agreed. At least 23 killed in Alabama yesterday by a tornado, at Beauregard, near your old home town.

MY old home town of Richmond, VA??? Either you have me confused with someone else, or else you need to make clear who the "your" is, if not the person you're quoting.

my family lived there from the 1860s coming from over the Georgia border. Does anybody think it is fair or just to see a child killed in a tornado. Everything ends and that is why everything continues.

Sorry, makes no sense to me. Implies that the universe and/or its rules are fair and just. I doubt it. But what do I know? Nothing more than any living human being - i.e., nothing.

I am dying now. Still urninating and can wal to bathroom. I wish I would give you hope of comfort but the truth is I am in my own private hell. I still follow the nba and get wonderful smiles, I hope the granddaughters

Sea? Can you finish your thought about the granddaughters?

Hate that you're suffering so terribly. No one should have to endure this. It's just wrong, and I don't care how 'natural.' Screw nature and natural!

OK, well, kiddo, all you can do is the best you can do. Thanks a million for your messages, no matter how short. Glad to hear you can still make it out of bed and to the bathroom. That's the ol' Seaoat perseverance at work!

Here's hoping along with you that you have a nice visit on Sunday. Hope the grands can give you a boost. Don't forget to let us know how it went, tho of course will hope for more communications before Sunday, as and when you can.
