The Ling has been stuck in the mud since at least 2016, so I'm wondering how flooding it made it list.

This Eye on The Record post from the end of 2016 discusses the Borgs and the Ling:

From August 3 - 10:

(NOTE: A couple of these observations might be a bit less than accurate...............hey - I write what I think I see)

1. Driver waits in the pouring rain.

2. I'm not sure what the purpose of these large rectangular structures is. Anybody know?

3. With all the heavy activity going on, flowers still manage to pop up.

4. Metallic shrubbery

5. Make your own caption.

6. This was a REALLY hot and humid day, so you find shade wherever you can during breaks.

7. The upper guy just noticed that the bottom guy tied his shoelaces together.

8. Tommy TwoHats

9. On-site holding cell with no roof for sun protection.............cruel (and unusual)!

10. First, the cement truck - partially visible at the bottom - fills the vat on the ground. The vat is hoisted up to where it's needed. You can see the gray cement falling out of the vat just to the right of center.

11. I have no idea what the purpose of the silver material is, but I'm pretty sure it's not aluminum siding.

12. These are still sitting there, so I don't know what they'll be used for.

13. This vehicle was moving fairly quickly uphill, so I rushed to get a shot during the one second or so that the brighter white van was the wood's background.

14. I love this shot. Lots of people in close proximity, yet each side of the fence seems totally oblivious to the other.......................ob-la-di (you know the rest).

15. The long shot looking north

16. I'm not sure, but this may be the top of that "holding cell" shown earlier. The interesting part of this shot - at least to me - is that on either side, the "not-aluminum-siding" is shown from above and behind. Now it looks like those windows with slats of rectangular glass that open from the bottom as you crank their handle. But they're not windows either, so what are they?

17. Whatever they are, here are more of them being installed.

18. Part of the side of that incline was being taken down as Woody Woodstacker did his job.

19. I think you know what this is by now and here come some more..........

20. This is a photostitch that shows the before and after parts of the top of the wall. More interestingly, it also shows where an unfortunate stitch was made that cut a car in half in the upper left on Main St. The stitch itself is OK - it's just that a car (actually two side-by-side cars) drove into the edge of the frame as I was shooting and that frame was later properly stitched by the program. Damn careless drivers!

(Scroll horizontally after enlarging to see the whole stitch)

For the same reason it gives us all the latest news about when Bogota's recycling is being picked up, but nothing about our own.

Hackensack Discussion / We don't want the rain to get wet

Why do we get Nixle notices from the Hackensack Office of Emergency Management when we've had pouring rain for days on end saying that "...Carver Park Splash Pad and Polifly Park Splash Pad are closed due to the inclement weather"?

Who is disappointed by this news? How many people did they expect to show up on rain-soaked days? What's the emergency?
