In other news.. This dam breach (well one of 'em) was predicted.. The owners of the Dam lost their license to produce electricity because of lack of proper maintenance to the dam and the fear of just this happening.

I remember a headline years and years ago
Dam Breaks, Road to Hell a Soggy Mess

Hell is a town in Lower MI (In the Pinckney Recreation area) where they sell (At the general store) Styrofoam snowballs (of course)

Been there.. Danced on the Dam Site. (Last dance held there due to the weakening of the dam.) it was like 2 years later it broke.


Home is where I park it.

Now this is likely just coincidence but many times, it's your computer/phone spying on you.

We don't use the voice activation features on our phones but there are times we are in the truck talking and the phone sitting in the cup holder will suddenly ask us to repeat what we said.

I was referring to how news articles pop up that oddly mirror places you've been and things you've seen. Also, as seen in bold, this was likely coincidence.

Then again, I wouldn't put it past google.

Hey, if windmills can cause cancer, why can't phones cause floods???

So far, the people below the dams have taken the evacuation orders seriously, thank goodness. I'm just praying that the huge Dow Chemical Plant is on high enough ground??

Sorry to see Michigan get inundated. It's time to drain the state! [emoticon]

Where can they drain Michigan to? There are very big lakes on three sides of the state?

I'm surprised how often I read of something in the news and "We've been there".

Hopefully everyone will be okay, and it will only be property damage from the floods in the area.

Very tragic - sometimes 6 degrees of separation is more like one degree.


There is something special about camping in an RV.
