But wait Obama minions are saying this bridge collapse is because of Republicans cutting the budget.... Yeah lets build more useless walking paths with taxpayer money, roads and bridges falling down falling down falling down, roads and bridges falling down my fair OBAMA...
The parallel bridge is already very busy with local traffic so the preferred detour routes are well out of the view of that shot. The dropped bridge used to serve 70,000 vehicles a day. The surface streets around there are really busy so the traffic is being detoured to two different rural highways.
“You seem paranoid.”
Nope, I just pay attention.
I’m going to stick with paranoid, and a little psychotic to boot.
Wish I could put you on ignore too.
“Wish I could put you on ignore too.”
If you really wanted to then you’d start by...ignoring me.
Seems to me you have too much fun doing what you do. If it’s fine with FR then it’s fine with me, too.
Have a great day.
I can ignore you through will easy enough.
I just really don’t want to see your pointless posts anymore.
You have a great day too.
I would think the depth of the river was just about right to give some buoyancy. Surprised no one had a heart attack as it was happening.
I’m sorry I guess you do know the neighborhood but are not currently a neighbor. I thought you were saying Avon-Allen Rd (where I grew up) was not a big detour, that’s all. Good luck in NYC. I think it’s a fun place to be, at least it was a wonderful time in life for me in the 1980s. Loved it.
They had an interview of the guy that was driving with his wife in the car. Navy (ex?) guy. After they landed, the car is filling with water. He realizes his shoulder is out. So he shoves his shoulder back in place, and then unbuckles his wife and helps her get out!
Amazing! How few would have that presence of mind, but thankfully for him and his wife, all the Navy training kicked in.
