If there was a way to cut through all the crap rattling around in my head, I’d do it.
As always – and I’m guessing that the three or four of you are getting tired of hearing this – radio rushes past me at a frantic pace. It’s just how it is. Maybe I am not necessarily addicted to radio, or trading before it, but to the pace of both.
This week has been dominated by the flood...
It’s just after midnight. Highland Fire Chief Bill Timmer just called me.
“We’re gonna have to close Kennedy Avenue,” the chief said.
It turns out that the Little Calumet River is over the 15 feet mark and still climbing. According to the chief, by the time it gets to 15.2 feet, the road should be closed. The number one thing you don’t want is for water to come onto the roadway and then rush into the surrounding neighborhood. Bridges are almost always the low points over rivers.
It’s 9:04pm and if you’re looking for news about the flood, I don’t have any. I just got off the phone with Dan Repay, the executive director of the Little Calumet River Basin. He’s the man with the answers when it comes to floods.
The triple whammy hit around here today.
It’s a great time of the year to be local radio guy, especially if you’re into basketball.
On Sunday, Alexis and I went to W. Lafayette for the Purdue-Penn State game. The Boilers pulled it out 76-73 to end a three-game skid that nobody saw coming. After winning 19 in a row, you expect more. For three games, you got less.
