Likely whatever that blockage it probably isnt severe.


It is almost a certainty now that due to the flooding Mississippi River the Morganza Floodway will have to be opened. This here is an image from the Army Corps of Engineers as to what would happen when the spillway is opened at 50%




That in itself is a lot of land, there is a major problem though. A long that river there are 3 nuclear power plants that rely on the Mississippi River for steam and energy. They are the:

Grand Gulf Nuclear Station:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Gulf_Nuclear_Generating_Station


River Bend Nuclear Generating Station:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Gulf_Nuclear_Generating_Station

Waterford Nuclear Generating Station:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waterford_Nuclear_Generating_Station



Its being very much ignored by the news it seems as to the damage that the flooding would cause, even without hitting any nuclear plants. But because these plants rely on river for power, when the river floods at a severe level like it is now (worst in recorded history down towards Louisiana likely) it would flood the nuclear stations. Of course they have more warning than they did in Japan. But this could lead to a serious water contamination issue, or worse depending on what happens.

Very interesting cancer research going on it when it isnt funded by the big pharmacy companies.

So, despite the fact that it costs $25 each for Toledo Arca tickets, my dad isn't buying them...
The track is like 40 fucking minutes away from me, lol. Maybe we can make the 2nd Arca race there in October.

Welp, no Auburndale tonight. Been raining like a bitch all day and they just announced a rainout. So that means the late model race is going to be moved to next weekend.

iRacing QA Event cancelled I guess, people who "registered" in time for the 5:15 start time got credit, so everyone's going to get screwed over AGAIN.

Ive just spend the past three days backing up all my files...

Got a virus that murdered my computer Monday afternoon. i got it back that night, and ran a virus scan. The scan got rid of all the viruses, but when it told me to restart, I didnt. So come Wednesday when I finally restarted, the internet isnt working. The virus must have killed some driver that connects to the internet when i restarted. So thurs/fri/today ive been backing up files, and just did a fresh windows xp install. weo internet works. Time to put all the shit back on and pretend it never happened...
