My guess is absolutely none. It's highly likely national news journalists traveled here once and got caught up in our Foxcroft Ave traffic nightmare and found it's just not worth it to report anything. They can't even get the traffic lights synchronized around here.
|Yep, that one right there!|
Anyway, that little spot in red is where I am from and live at in West Virginia.
The street I live on is right off of a major route in and out of this county should a real emergency occur here. The major emergency route or Route 11 is to my left; the Interstate to my right and close enough that I am used to hearing jake brakes now.
Should an emergency occur and depending on the emergency it's a toss-up if we would make it out now since it appears something has failed.
Several years ago and about a half mile from my house on the major emergency route, that section of highway went through a couple of million dollar road project. I don't remember the exact words used to describe it but I remember and I am pretty sure that taxpayer money was used for it. Fast forward to what has been happening on this highway right now that I now refer to as clowns to the left of us and jokers to the right and especially with all of the rain that we've gotten this year and new this year, flooding.
This is the end of our road as it intersects with US Route 11. It is to the right of the picture and covered in water.
See the darker car setting sideways? That is not a street. That is a drainage ditch along the roadway that this car got stuck in and then the driver proceeds to get out and not get to safety but got behind the car and tried to push it out and when that didn't work got in front and tried to pull the car out.
That is when I walked back to my house. I was afraid that idiot driver was going to slip underneath the vehicle.
This is to the right of us
See the line of the shoulder of the roadway and then notice how quickly it disappears under the water?
I have a picture of this flood water swallowing up a Benz but I can't find it right now.
Other than the stupid drivers who drive through the road closure signs, those of us living along this stretch of highway are wondering, what the hell happened to our stretch of road? Why is it flooding like this now when it never flooded like this before?
Depending on whom you talk to it's a toss up between all that Aqua Net or White Rain hairspray of years ago.
I am not a highway engineer but something has clearly failed!
I don't know what PO'd mother nature this year, but it can stop raining now! There are more pics, I just have to get them off my camera.
pics were taken by me
