Woman - EV Melotte

Woman - EV Melotte

I am warmth, I am sun
I am nourishing rain,
I am Woman,
I have work to do.

Your guns and your factories,
Your buildings and commerce,
Are only toys to amuse you.

Play with them, trade them,
Hoard them, destroy them,
It makes no difference.

Give me your seed.
And go play with your toys,
I am busy
For I am Woman,
I carry the future.

For those worried about the road conditions on 151 - this comes from alderman Andy Traxler's inquiries.

"Hello Mr. Traxler: we do have two upcoming projects that will substantially improve the pavement from Sun Prairie to Columbus.
Project 1111-03-70 will address the worst 2.4 miles in both directions. This section is the roadway both south and north of the CTH V interchange area between Sun Prairie and Columbus. The improvement will patch and asphalt overlay the northbound lanes, and fully replace the pavement of the southbound lanes. This project also includes the overlay and repairs to eight (8) structures within and outside of the 2.4 mile section. This project is currently scheduled for 2018 construction.
Project 1111-03-72 will address the pavement from CTH VV near Sun Prairie to STH 73 north of Columbus (except for the 2.4 mile section taken care of under 1111-03-70). The improvement will patch and asphalt overlay the existing pavement in both the northbound and southbound directions. This project is currently scheduled for 2019 construction.
No pavement work is currently programmed from IH 39 to Sun Prairie at this time.
Projects on USH 151 are reviewed, prioritized and scheduled based on a statewide review of all backbone routes (which includes all of the interstate system).

GREAT JOB Andy!!!

Now if we could raise the gas tax to get these done SOONER that would rock but the DOT has no money to fix roads so we will wait 2 more years.

We missed a pretty big storm last night.  While Columbus was getting 0.68 inches of rain many parts of Madison were getting 4+ inches of flooding rain.

I took some unique images of the storms yesterday.  This was from the morning storms.

The below was from the afternoon storms.  I was getting crap blown into my eyes on this one.  You can see DJ on the deck.

And then the sunset!


Check out this chart of the action Thursday.  You can see when the two storms hit. I love the temperature drop on that second storm.  

Another thing to look at was the wind. We had a bump in velocity when the wind changed direction but once it came back to the south the gusts (little yellow dots) hit 48mph for a while. 



Going to be hot at least until Monday. I don't think we will hit a heat index of 100 today. 97ish around 3-4:00 and 95 Saturday but yesterday was the worst.  Yesterday the high dew point was 80.6 and high temp was 90.7 around 4:00 in the afternoon.

I have to say something about immigrants!  According to a recent study - immigrants, IN REALITY, are more law abiding then your average American citizen.  So when Trump says they are killing Americans . . . .it's a lie.  They are more peaceful then Americans.

He also mentioned that there have been 50% more police killings then last year at this time.  Also a lie.  There has been one LESS killing.  68 last year at this time, 67 this year.

I could go on and one but no one is changing their minds. His speech last night was meant for his base - not for the rest of America. It was a REALLY depressing speech and according to him we need to build safe rooms because America is SUCH a horrible place to live.  

Plus he was Mr. Obvious over and over.  Lots of things he will do but never any actual ways to do it.

MAKE AMERICA AFRAID AGAIN 

Come on smart Republicans - take back your party.

The PROBLEM is that America will be doing fairly well on election day and MOST Americas are optimistic.  They are not buying into the doom and gloom Trump wants us to believe.

According to the latest polls Trump has a 40.1% of becoming president. But after conventions are not good times for polls.

**********************

All of this "we want Trump because he is different" is exactly what happened in England with Brexit. They voted for Brexit because ANYTHING was better then what they had which is what Trump people are voting on.

WELL - England just had their first round of economic data and their economy is crashing - NOT riding high that the exit people thought would happen.

"July saw a dramatic deterioration in the economy, with business activity slumping at the fastest rate since the height of the global financial crisis in early-2009."

If you want to see your retirement funds and stock market crash and disappear - vote Trump. The stock market that runs this country LOVES the unknown.  LOL
