    Allen In Nebraska

    Allen might have been affected by the flooding. If not I bet he has been busy with all the snow. Another in that area is Nebraska 1206

    This started on March 8th and here it is March 19 and they are just reporting on it the last two days. And even then a lot of what they are reporting is incorrect. I don't know about you but a week and a half is a little late ??? The state has even fixed and opened a couple of the roads faster than they reported on it.

    Things have changed a lot at offutt since you have been there. The air base part is just a small part of the operation. Stratcom and many other operations located there that only a few people know about pay a major role. There is more underground than above ground there. Have several friends and neighbors that are located there. They can't say much but you can put two and two together and get an idea. I don't know what the underground building we built. But it was built to with stand anything.

    Hope your family in Blair and Fremont are ok. People in Fremont just had a way to get out of town today. First time since Friday morning. Because before that every road way under water. Do you remember the IH dealer in Scribner. I Bought a lot of machinery from that place before they closed.

    FEMA MUST not of learned anything. After the 2011 flood. I hope FEMA does not show up. Things would have not been as bad. And things would have been cleaned up faster at a lot less cost if FEMA would have not been involved

    Did a little flying around yesterday. You should see HWY 30 around Fremont. Dodge street and center street west of Omaha. Radio said this morning state thinks there is 61Hwy bridges damaged because of the flooding. That does not take into account county roads and bridgrs

    You are 100 percent right. Worse thing that happen in the 2011 flood was FEMA showed up. Everything went down hill after that. Part of the 2011 food and this flood was cause by the Corp of engineers having b to keep so much water in the dams on the Missouri.

    I live right in the middle of this. I'm lucky my house sits high so it did not get damaged. Can't say the same about my farms. What little I have seen on the News. They can't get the facts straight so I wish they would just say nothing. I don't think most of the country realizes what this effect will have on the whole country. The major east west UP Burlington railroad tracks are washed away and one of their bridges is ???? About the only east west road is I80 in this state. Lots of oversize loads are sitting waiting to travel. I29 in iowa is closed. Lots of loads travel that road north and south. Even regular trucks are having a hard time traveling. I had to drive 180 miles yesterday to get 20 miles in a car. That cost everyone money. Offuit air force base is closed. They are major players in this countries defence. Main reason this has not hit the news is instead of people crying for someone to come help. The people of this state have stepped up and are taking care of themselves. Even before a Call went out for supplies and help the response has was overwhelming. There has not been looting that happens in other areas. Hate to think what would happen to someone who does loot. I hope FEMA stays out of this all they did in the 2011 flood is make matters worse.

    It only took them a week to start covering it. The worse is over and we are starting to recover. Would not call that good coverage

    Penna CDL No Manual Transmission restriction?

    The idea of national CDL was a great idea. Then the states started wanting money and control of the CDL license and we are worse off than before. Then add in the people that try to beat the system and this is what we ended up with

    States I deal with, You have to drive a like vehicle. Pickup and trailer is not the same as a tractor trailer. What I have noticed in that case. Is they gave them a class a with a restriction. Also a pickup does not have air brakes. So you would get that restriction. Pretty sure if you tried to get your class a with no auto endorsement with a pickup. Then came back with a smaller truck for the air brakes endorcement. It would not fly. Maybe some states are not following the rules?
