Maybe we need to buy the Big Sioux river a pad w/ wings

We don’t seem to be concerned about transparency and conflict of interests in local government. We don’t seem to care about sewer backups, pot-marked streets and water rates being raised every 10 days. We even love to let the city spend millions on task-fucking-force after task-fucking-force on the events center (even though the public has yet to vote on a funding source).

But what do we like to get concerned about? Spring flooding.

Like a women’s menstrual cycle, spring flooding is pretty much gonna happen. Yeah, it may be off a few days, but it always happens. But it doesn’t stop our local government, officials and local media from blowing it way out of proportion;

They believe they have dodged a major bullet.  After weeks of preparing for record flooding, they now believe the flood threat for the city is over, at least for now.

While I should be having a sigh of relief, all I can do is laugh at how freaking ridiculous our city officials look making mountains out of mole hills. It would of took a civil engineer and a meteorologist about 30 minutes to figure out our flood threat was low. But hey, let’s divert attention from the real problems that exist in our city by talking about a woman’s monthly visitor.

Maybe we should hold a press conference about the threat of one-way streets downtown have on public safety. I see Iwegions and old people driving the wrong way all the time on them.

I was told that the National Weather Service had less than half of the river level sensors working because of Government cut backs…

Hey, why assume the Big Sioux is a she? After all, there’s “Old Man River,” “Father of Waters” and other sech waterway nicknames.

So I propose a task force to decide if we buy the river a pad w/ wings or, instead, an incontinence pull up brief.

Then, I want a task force on where to buy the item… Lewis? Walgreen’s? Zandbroz? They all need to be considered.

Even Aunt Flo would tell you location matters, especially if that time comes at the wrong time & place.

as for all those TF’s, the first one had it right.

last night on kelo they should them dredging the diversion channel for silt. why isn’t there any water in that thing?

It seemed pretty obvious to me that this wouldn’t be as big of a problem this year, as the temp hovered around highs of 32 or so for quite a few days. If a dummy like me can figure it out, why not the dopes at KELO? Oh wait, never mind.

Just think how many we could of bought if we didn’t test out those “snowgates”

Yeah, but you know, the snowgates are narrowing the streets today (even though all the snow melted the next day). Either some of these people in city government and the local media are really stupid, or we are stupid to listen to them. I guess we can attribute that to are well-funded education system in SD.
