Do YOU need HELP ??

Post by Graham Adder »

I'd like to offer my help in some capacity. I'm not sure where to go or what is needed.
I think a thread where people like myself can go to see where their help is needed would be of great benefit to those in dire need.
I have a vehicle that can be used to haul sandbags (empty or filled) to or from wherever needed.

What I don't want to do is drive to a sandbagging area to see five people standing around holding a coffee, while only two are actually bagging sand or doing anything physical. That's what I've seen on a few occasions now. I'm not into offering help, when it clearly isn't needed or appreciated.

So, if you live in a neighborhood that needs immediate help, post it here, so others can offer what they have to help.

Additionally, this thread should not be hard to find. It is.
This is an urgent matter in our immediate community and the thread pertaining to it should be front page of the forums, just as the fire watch thread is when it's required.

The sandbagging stations all over the place would be the best bet for giving help when you don't have a specific person to help.

My partner (in crime) and I went out last night BEFORE dark, and checked the sandbagging stations in our area. We checked them all down Mill Creek and even went to the Eldorado to see if there was anyone in need.

Castanet reported that baggers were busy until the last light, bagging and placing sand bags.
That was a crock of ripe dung.
There was not ONE person to be found at ANY of those stations. NOT ONE.
I said, "How serious is this, that Colin Crossdresser would issue a warning to people that we're headed for the worst flooding we've ever seen. Lend a hand and help thy neighbor, he said.
Cod, ham cheese and rice what a joke.

If my home were under threat, I'd be out there bagging sand until the threat was gone. Darkness isn't a reason to stop bagging sand if there is a real threat.
I'm going to enjoy my beer today, and take a restful weekend. Nobody needs my help. They're well prepared without my back aching.

The home on Lindahl was piled with sandbags last Saturday. Last night they had taken them all down. That's the house with a bridge over the creek as part of their driveway. I live a stone's throw from that home. I hope for their sake, we don't get the Basran Flood of 17, because they'll have a hard time getting the locals to pitch in again after seeing them remove the bags even after being told not to. Many if not most of the bags placed down Sutherland have also been removed.

If I lift my big fat *bleep* off the couch, I'll be headed for Commonwealth Road. Not my own neighborhood. Those people need the help. Those people will have a great appreciation for anyone willing to pitch in.

So, the advice of "just go to a pile of sand" might just as well say, "Just go pound sand."
I'm gonna pound some beer instead.

I'm left wondering who is profiting from this hype. Someone is making a killing, or they wouldn't be telling us all such a big lie.

Cheers all. Clink!

I was there today. They definitely have water issues. Likely going to find my way out there tonight or tomorrow morning.

Could not agree with you more GA.
Want your bags of leaves gone? Put a "free" sign on them out by the road so people can grab them.

Is anyone on here from the Commonwealth Road area, or Bottom Woodlake/ Lodge Road area that can advise regarding help needed?

Has the water risen since last evening?
Are there urgent bagging efforts going on that could really use some immediate aid?
