Oroville Dam Collapse...
I had a whole different blog planned for this morning but before I got started I noticed our good friend and fellow patriot, Hammertime brought up the Oroville dam in California late last night.
I remember back in 93 when we were facing pretty much the same thing with the Tuttle Creek dam in Manhattan.
I couldn't help but worry about the thousands of people directly in the path of destruction if that dam had failed.
At the time my wife and I lived in the Oakland area and the Kansas River had reached the breaking point.
I still remember standing on the dike that protects the entire area from the Kansas River.
You could actually feel the vibration as the deadly waters churned.
If that dike had failed it would have instantly destroyed everything in it's path.
My neighbors on both sides moved most of their things to storage units and stayed with relatives till the water had gone back down.
And it's what prompted us to buy a house on higher ground.
California Governor Jerry Brown has sent the National Guard to evacuate 130,000 people from the area and has asked the Trump administration for help.
He's asked that Trump declare the area a Federal Disaster.
As much as I despise Jerry Brown and the crap coming out of California these days, I hope Trump answers his call for help.
