Was that car clear under water or did she move it back in from somewhere after?
Sorry different angles. One is looking straight across the street and the other is looking to the side but you can see how the water had risen. She hasn't snapped in 7 hours, I was hoping for an update.

Hope her and her mom are as good as can be.

These storms bring out the biggest jerks. Interviewing a guy on CNN that "I never leave, but this time it's bad and they need to rescue me and my neighbors". No, what they need to do is let you figure it out on your own and not put their own lives in danger. Screw these people, you had plenty of warning.

Isn't the whole thing of a mandatory evacuation order that they may not pull you from your house and put you on a bus somewhere safe by force, but they're also not going to do anything until it's safe to check on you after the storm is over?

I to am an Petras fan, your to dumb too recognize there ability too grow QBs. Petras four Heisman!

Agree. Not everyone has the means or ability to evacuate, but the ones who do and stay put anyways only to end up on a rooftop begging for help are a complete drain on resources and should be last in line for help.

Pretty much. Mandatory evac means they won't send emergency personnel into the area until the storm is gone.

I can sort of relate to the non-evacuees. So many times they get it wrong. And you end up evacuating for nothing. Costly and a huge inconvenience.

I kind of relate it to us. We hear a tornado warning for our area and how many of us actually go down to our basement or wait until we feel like we're in immediate danger?

Not exactly the same, but I understand the decision is not easy-peasy.

I can honestly say in the 40 years I have lived in the Midwest, I have never had a multi day power outage. The most I can recall being out is maybe 6 or 7 hours.

DER-AY-CHO.
12 days middle of CR, no power. 90% of the city had multiple days no power, and I would guess close to 50% was a week.

I've heard the whole "you can't tell me what to do" crowd refusing to take basic precautions and then causing a great burden and risk to others when they inevitably need rescuing story before, but I can't quite place it....
