I am seeing some people got sand bags, not to block incoming water into their homes, but to hold down the tarps upon the roofs all the way around the edges. I didn’t think of that, but is that a good idea putting all the extra weight on their roofs?????? Why not just nails to hold the tarps down? That must of been a chore lugging those heavy sand bags up to the roofs…..geesh!

Don’t worry mayor, I won’t. Let’s see, the St. John’s River is the rare one, that flows north. The other Florida rivers flow south. It is amazing how fast the rivers are cresting and flooding everybody and closing down highways, and bridges. Hurricanes, wildfires, mudslides, sinkholes, tornados, Zika virus, blizzards, floods, droughts, earthquakes, toxic waters, rust belts with no employment, man- eating pythons, etc., I wonder where there is a safe place to relocate to in this country, if any???

They truly do not know what killed them, but it is highly suspected that it was due to excess heat. The nursing home had power. They did lose the main central air conditioning somehow, but had power, and ran portable air conditioners, and fans throughout the home. They called the Florida Power and Light Company and reported it, and kept calling on status updates, as to when they were going to repair the line. They called the first responders, and reported everything that they were suppose to. I mean, to me, it is hard for me to believe that the facility acted in negligence. I could be wrong though. It is tragic. They had food, ice, and like I say, some air conditioning, and fans, but older ill people are susceptible to various elements. I feel for their loved ones. The medical examiner will conduct an investigation as to the cause of the deaths. Happy Birthday Mr. Bryan Nelson. You are still young, and you haven’t gotten to the over the hill sixty club…..YET!… Just don’t put that many candles on your cake, as we don’t want you to have to huff and puff and blow yourself out. LOL People are getting back to their normal grouchy selves. No more Mr. Nice Guy, like right before the storm hit. I knew it was too good to be true.

I should of knocked on wood. We didn’t get a newspaper delivered today. I called the automated line and I should get one delivered tomorrow. See it doesn’t pay to brag on anyone….LOL I suppose Trump is on his way to Florida. Naples, I think. Mama Mia Mama Mia Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Okay Kim Jong Un, I am getting REALLY tired of your threats to demolish the US into a pile of ashes. Keep on little kim, and I will be forced to deal with you in my own way. I will go get 99 red balloons and I’ll send them up into the atmosphere, and if you have ever heard the song, “99 Red Balloons” and watched the video of that song, on You Tube (the video, the one that shows the army tanks on the railroad trains, the warships, and the fighter jets, the nuclear missiles going up, and the Russian flag to the left and the US flag to the right) then you know what that means! But this video meaning has been updated and now it means North Korea, and the US, little kim….. The government radar watchers see the 99 balloons on radar, and they declare that there is something out there, and they launch the nuclear missiles to North Korea, and start the war ……..I warned you little kIm…..LOL BITCHING IS THERAPY ON A BUDGET, got it??? I saw the film from the nursing home where 8 people died. The inside, the floor area was covered in flood water. I did not know that. They should have evacuated those people to somewhere. It makes me think maybe there was some negligence on someone’s part possibly, don’t know however.

Extra expenses they didn’t count on and a real hardship. It is going to take a long time to get this entire area back to normal. I know it takes time, but nothing is going to get back to normal until power is restored for everyone. The whole situation is aggravating even though there are people who are way worse off than Apopka people. I am seeing some huge cranes around in town removing trees from house tops. I understand they cost about $ 600 dollars per hour, plus all the other labor costs.

Please enter your email address here The garbage truck just came and took away the garbage. The street stinks to high heaven. It is sickening the smell that is in the air, and also the leakage from the truck, the stink! The city should furnish us residents nose clips or come around and spray deodorant, Phew U !!! Can smell the garbage truck a mile away, thanks a lot for the weak stomach I have now, as I feel like puking……… 16 COMMENTS Reply I heard the loud chopper up in the air over Park Avenue in Apopka today. Didn’t know if they were surveying the damage or if something else was going on. Jose supposedly is moving on north, possibly going to Cape Cod. Let’s hope so, but there is another potential hurricane down below the Caribbean Islands currently that we will need to watch mid week next week toward the weekend. Also another system forming off Africa that is too early to predict.

My immediate thought was uh oh, that might be a broken natural gas line with sand blowing in the air. Then I saw what it was. It was a big old gopher turtle digging and kicking sand into the air as he was digging down.

They better hope the grocery stores get some meat supply in, or Thanksgiving is going to come early for them….LOL We did have a lady in a car flag us down, and ask us did we need any water or any supplies as she had extra and offered them to us. That was nice. We told her that we are okay, but thanks very much anyway. There are still some nice people around. Reply last_img
