Sept. 17 Bless Your Heart
Monday, September 17, 2018
BYH: Thanks to the linemen who worked in the rain and dark to replace a broken pole to restore power to Jacksontown Road in Ayden on Friday night.
A big bless your heart to the town of Ayden Public Works & Utilities Department crews. Due to their tireless efforts, I never lost current for more than one hour during the hurricane. The citizens of Ayden thank each one of you for a job well done!
The Greenville Utilities Department was on top of its game during this storm and took care of outages almost as soon as they occurred. Also a big bless your heart to the water response team that went to New Bern to assist in rescues. Well done!
BYH to the folks at Greenville Public Works who were out in the rain during Florence cleaning the storm drain grates to prevent blockages and street flooding.
BYH, Greenville Mayor PJ Connelly for your calm demeanor during the Hurricane Florence press conferences and emergency services social media postings. You handled the news media and helped inform the residents of Greenville with utmost professionalism. My family and I thank you for all of your hard work you do for our city.
I wasn't thinking about it at first, but most cities in a hurricane talk to the mayor at some point. Why haven't we seen the Kinston mayor interviewed? Is his number unlisted to the news media? Just wondering! Sure he has something to say.
BYH TV stations. Will there be a vote on who has the best graphics for Hurricane Florence? Got pretty boring seeing the same-old same-old for 24 plus hours. Maybe it would be better to put some people in key locations to report actually what is happening.
Another hurricane and the global warming cultists blame climate change caused by man. If man can change the climate, why can't he cure baldness and make doughnuts a health food?
My neighbor said that, if the lights went out, he did not want to hear my generator running. I told him the generator would run and I hoped the noise caused him the same amount of distress his two dogs have caused me down through the years. We shall see.
What hurricane party? My wife and I are stuck here at home trying to avoid a hurricane bare-knuckle, no-holds-barred Texas cage match. Love knows no bounds.
So we have another flood and the taxpayers rebuild for those who choose to live in a flood zone. I must say it is hard to understand. Does moving to higher ground even cross their minds?
BYH. Oh, come on! I've lost count of how many hurricanes I've weathered here in Greenville, but did this little windbag Florence warrant days-long, around-the-clock coverage? Couldn't they take off a half hour and broadcast my “Jeopardy?” See how I phrased that in the form of a question?
