Let’s see…..a highway overpass collapses and the electric grid in my area is so fragile that if we get a strong thunderstorm we lose power just yesterday for 6 hours and brown outs on several occasions……these are just most recent happenings…….. our infrastructure sucks!
2016 gave us Donald Trump and also it gave us his idle promises that got him elected…..you know that wall that someone else would pay for, and he would fix our crumbling infrastructure….highways, bridges and such…..
What happened to that promise?
The American Conservative has asked the question as well……
Those who live and watch the weather in the Great Plains know that the storms there are not singular in their effects. A lot of factors come into play.
How much moisture is locked in the soil, what the previous months had wrought weather-wise, how much runoff the rivers had been handling, and even how the volatile currents in the atmosphere mix as spring jostles with winter—all these things affect whether you can take the kids to the park or plant the corn this week or next or go fishing on the river today or tomorrow.
In mid-March, all of those factors came into play, and what looked like a land-based hurricane hitting Nebraska and its neighboring states on the weather radar was just that: a horrific and record-breaking storm that even many old-timers had never seen the likes of before. Meteorologists call such storms “bomb cyclones” and this was one of the biggest ever. The flooding in Nebraska was the worst in 50 years.
I know that if you support Trump (I suggest that you have a check-up)you will hate the Dems “Green New Deal”, right?
I know you do not want to hear it but that plan/idea is an infrastructure plan….you know that same thing that Trump promised along for million of jobs his idea would create…….
