That is rough... At least it's not the dead of winter yet.

Enbridge... Heh - there's been a huge dispute with them here in Michigan for over a year about their line 5 that runs under the Mackinaw Bridge. As it turns out the longer it drags on people are right to be concerned about the state of the pipeline. It's old and beyond life expectancy and has apparently NOT been maintained to standards. Like corrosion inhibitor damage that was never reported and not properly taken care of. Now they are talking about putting in a tunnel under the straights of Mackinaw... A sizeable rupture as it is would have a HUGE impact on the Great Lakes.

Yeah fres, peer pressure reveals the unobtainable greatness, always around the corner always out of reach always a few thousand dollars away in a nameless, faceless, oderless and tasteless war of reasoned confusion.

Looks like the fire was out fast... nice thing about pipelines is you just shut the valve and there's no more fuel. I'm on the upstream side of the block so not big effect for me.
