This is not a good pic, but I did not have a scanner antenna so I had to adapt an old TV antenna with a small nail and a short piece of wire. I did this last night, and I had the app in my phone going too. My laptop was also essential to be aware of what is going on.

Nice & Sunny out here in Michigan. If you need to go out to forgot your dingy!!!! Your gonna need a boat to get around.
My apartment complex got upgraded to an infinity pool last night.
Other than this I haven't seen any damage. Maybe I'll go for a drive in a bit and see what I can find.

Yeah dude, it was bad, look past her fence, it looks like the everglades, she got slammed, my house is cool though, just some small branches and leaves around, no flooding, a tree fell down by her house and as you can see it kinda flooded a bit
Did you wear your flip flops into the water?

I went for a drive and my first stop was in Hatboro PA. while there I took a pic of a fallen tree at a church, then I walked down the street to where the Pennypack creek is. I stopped at a Pizzeria on the right side. I started to take pics from the outside through the glass. Then a guy steps up to say hey come on, go in and he opened the door. I stepped in the doorway and took more pics using the pop up flash. After a few minutes I stopped and then turned around, I spoke with the guy who happened to be the owner of the place. I waited a bit then i spoke up and offered to email pics to him for his business insurance.
As you can see the place was under water, they tried sand bags and taped up plastic sheets. The water current must have been strong, it filled the place full of mud as you can clearly see this on the floor.

I forgot to mention that before that while I was walking down York Rd, I first saw this tree and if you look carefully you will see how a street sign was neatly crushed.5837

After that I walked towards the creek overpass and I found the Historic Old Mill Inn. Well since that restaurant was flooded and that was farther away, the Inn was closer and suffered more serious damage. Looking at the pics I took, you can see that the addition close to the edge had moved, pushed by the creeks current.

My next stop was Fairmount Park, near Chestnut Hill in Philly. Bells Mill Dr. was partially blocked off due to a work crew cutting trees blocking the road.

That's what Crocs were made for, wading through Hurricane Katrina post-scenarios.

Now that makes sense. With water covering your feet no one would actually know you were wearing them!!

There's no excuse for crocks...
09-08-2011, 09:43 PM
agreed... only little kids a should be allowed to wear them.
09-08-2011, 10:07 PM
Little kids and doctors, cause when you save lives every day you can have comfy feet.
