Hujan deras selama dua hari terakhir ini membuat Desa Ngering, Kecamatan Cerme tergenang air. Bukan karena luapan sungai melainkan tidak adanya saluran pembuangan air. Kondisi seperti ini bisa bertahan hingga berhari-hari bahkan berminggu-minggu hingga paving jalan berlumut dan licin. Masalah seperti ini sudah muncul dalam dua tahun terakhir. Peninggian jalan paving beberapa bulan kemarin tidak membawa hasil positif.
Drainase atau saluran air dalam beberapa tahun terakhir memang menjadi masalah di Kabupaten Gresik. Sak iki udan titik wis banjir, udan diluk wis banjir. Eh duduk banjir seh, tergenang.

Kristianstad. I’m leaving you for the weekend. When I return I will capture the floods on the bare fields of your kingdom of water. For the train ride I’ll take a cup of coffee and a book by David Foster Wallace. I will arrive at a place of treasure in a couple of hours.
Repost @galeriepompom Last days to see '1717 PAINTING/NOT PAINTING'
Ollie Lucas, Flood(2), 2017, pigment print on archival cotton photographique 310gsm, hand painted Tasmanian oak frame, 118.9 x 84.1 cm. From our current group exhibition, 1717 Painting/not painting, until 17 December.
‘Ollie Lucas explores the language of contemporary signs and symbols in his work. Posters, billboards, flags and signals are translated into paintings that attempt to explain our current urban consciousness. In Lucas’ works, neon colours merge with dark tones to create patterns that emulate nature, such as flickering flames, clouds, waves and sunset gradients. Flood (2) sees a central, rectilinear form of orange and grey haze, bordered with black and purple cloud-like patterning. The central form billows into folds at the base, as though a flag flapping in the wind.’ From Melissa Loughnan’s exhibition essay ‘The persistence of painting.’
Wonderful people of the petrolhead clan, howdy to you all. Thank God peace is restored to the world after so many hurricanes and floods the world has seen in recent times.
We sympathize with those who were largely affected, those who lost their homes, their loved one and of course those who lost their cars, Yes cars!
In the past few months, America has seen quite a number, Cindy, Jose, Harvey, Irma to mention but a few and we dare say that the past few months have been the worst in the history of the country. Yes, we had a few showers of rain and just one day of flooding in Lagos but I believe at the end of this article we can all agree that we all were equally as affected as they were.
Reports show that over 1,000,000 plus vehicles were condemned as a result of those natural disasters, those figures cover just the used vehicles and not the brand new vehicles on sale at the dealerships. As we all know, our used vehicles supply is gotten from America and yes all those flooded cars and are on ships right now heading for Nigeria. Now You Can Panic!!!
If you are one of those auto dealers who use the term American spec when you want to sell a used car, you might wanna take a rain check on that. This is because American used vehicles are going to becomes traps for those who would be buying them because they would be coming with flood-related faults served on a platter.
Let's look at some of these faults, shall we?
1. corrosion: If the car was submerged in salt water, corrosion is going to be a big issue
2. Damaged Electricals: We all know that water and electricity don't mix, once water hits components like the brain box, it would cost thousands to fix. Don't be surprised when your heated seats decide to heat themselves on a sunny day in Lagos traffic.
3. Grinding and Smashing Sounds: Your car is mostly metal and when it starts to rust, yes annoying sounds manifest especially from moving parts.
With these being said let's find out how to spot a flooded car, it's very easy all you need to do is pay extra attention.
