I put all the food in my truck and went in the house to get some more stuff. I live on the beach. When I came back outside I noticed that the wind was getting faster and it made me very scared. I got in my big black truck and it did not start, it was out of gas. I walked to the gas station with a red gas can so I could get some gas.
“The intense heat of the prairie caused wood to shrink, and wagon wheels had to be soaked in rivers at night to keep their iron rims from rolling off during the day...Emigrant’s lips blistered and split in the dry air, and their only remedy was to rub axle grease on them.” The dry and hot air had the time to go west even greater than it should had because of little annoyances. The emigrants on the Oregon trail faced the most hassle trying to survive and endure in the west because of pestilence, misfortune, and climate. The Chinese emigrant working on the transcontinental railroad had a hard time as well on the trail. They faced bad pay, racism, and hard work. However, the emigrants on the trail went into the unknown.
The infamous winds of Santa Ana repeatedly help develop a sky ridden with smoke, but for many on the golden coast this is just a typical day. The winds spiral into flames catching among the wild flowers that flourish on the vast valleys of California. These winds are unstoppable. However, it seems as if many refuse this idea in hopes that the land in california will become untouched by the dry winds if humans decide to build. It seems as if no one realizes that the ash from last year will be buried under tar at first, but soon enough the winds will take over the land and a new layer of ash will settle..
As I got on the road I knew I was going to hit afternoon rush hour the worst possible time to drive. My drive home is from the Belmont on ramp on to I-90 south to I-94 south and to 394. The majority of the traffic is through the jane Bryant interchange to 95th street, the entire way is bumper to bumper traffic. While I am on the on ramp onto I-90 I see a stop light on the ramp, I thought it strange that there was a stop light here. It controls how many cars can merge onto the highway, it works as a stop sign once you make a complete stop before the line it turns green.
Weather also can play a huge role on the negative side. Texas is known to have very hot summers and bipolar weather, where it is 100 degree at noon and then 40 degree at 4p.m all in one day, this is truly not surprising to see 35-45 degree swings in temperatures during parts of the year. There also are life-threatening weather, like deadly tornados and hurricanes, which many individuals have lost their lives to. Everybody needs a car, this state has little public transportation even in the larger cities like Dallas and Houston. Reminder that Texas is a very big and spacious state and it can sometime take more the hour to get to your location in one single city.
The broad plateau at its summit is large enough to hold Dodgers Stadium with plenty of room for parking. Set to close this October, it is the country’s largest active landfill. Most of the 130 million tons of waste buried for eternity beneath its lumpy slopes could have been recycled” (1). With the use of words such as “trash mountain”, the reader can greatly visualize America’s landfilling problem and the importance of recycling. However, despite his use of imagery, there were some faults in his essay.
This 150,000 square-mile storm area encompassing Oklahoma, Texas, and neighboring parts of states including Kansas, Colorado, and New Mexico was not an issue to be taken lightly. When winds easily picked up topsoil and swirled it into dense dust clouds call "black blizzards", it was hard to not be terrified for your life. These enormous clouds of dust deposited mounds of dirt on anything you could imagine. The dust also began to cause the choking of cattle and pasture lands. Children were even beginning to get pneumonia.
Looked to be a sturdy cornfield. But since it just rained days before the land was very soft and was not safe enought to be driving big trucks on at high speeds. Well as kids do, we do stuff before we think. So we all jump in my friends truck, in the cab and also in the
In this essay I will compare and contrast driving in the winter and driving in the summer. Driving can be very dangerous. There are four types of seasons, but there are only two that have huge differences and will require different concentration. Throughout the year there have been many accidents due to the weather. Safe driving should always be a top priority, especially when there’s traffic.
Also, the distance from Seattle to San Diego on I-5 is about 1,255 miles, according to Google Maps.” That is a lot of places, in which these workers must plow at least once a week, or every day! And depending on the weather the roads would get harder and harder to plow, and the bigger and larger the requests for the workers to plow the neighborhood become! Also, www.portlandoregon.gov states “Because of their hazardous and changing conditions in winter weather, the Traction Advisory Areas warrant extra caution and chains or studded tires may be required if you choose to drive on these streets, hills, and bridges.” Driving during winter on these roads, takes a lot of skill. The driver must be cautious, and must always know what they are doing. In order to solve this problem, states should raise money.
Their unit responds to a lot of car wrecks of off highway 575, which are either mild or deadly accidents. He said 3 overall between both stations, eighty percent are medical calls. He said, “sometimes you see things that will never leave your mind and you constantly are seeing those images”. After sharing all this information with me, Josh wanted to just add some quick facts to better my knowledge of fire fighting. He informed me that, Pre- Incident planning crews go out once year to do planning around the city.
The drivers in Memphis have a tendency to be rude and reckless. Everyone is in a hurry so you can expect to be cut or flipped off from time to time. But due to the many highways and interstates around Memphis, the traffic isn 't too bad when compared to Dallas. Because Dallas offers so many complex road systems, it is easy to get quite lost in the city. The traffic is much worse than Memphis and is mainly due to the consistent road construction and reconstruction.
One of the things that makes hail so damaging to roofing in Frisco Texas is the size of the hail. The hail ranges from dime size to softball size hail. The roof does indeed provide great protection in those and many other situations. In short the frequency in which a roof needs to be replaced is mostly dependent on the amount and size of hail that comes in severe weather. When that severe weather comes along, our need of safety climbs to the very
The Meatpacking District became a very dangerous area once the automobile was invented because it interfered with the elevated freight trains. Because the trains carried merchandises essential to the lives of most New Yorkers, freight trains were given the right of way to stop wherever they please just to make a delivery. Thus, a ten-car train would be blocking traffic just to deliver the goods. It most likely took longer than 30 minutes to unload the train of the goods to whichever business it delivered to, so the traffic gets overbearingly crowded. Besides the terrible congestion, regular New Yorkers would be in this area because most markets would be located there, so that they could get fresh produce from the local slaughterhouses.
