For those of us ready to say goodbye to 2020, there is at least one point in the US that's already saying "goodnight" to it today.

This aspect of Alaska amazes and freaks me out for some reason!!

I could handle it if it was like this most of the time (and I had daily access to a light box). What's surprising is all the forests and other plants that grew up there before the cold came. They must have gone dormant in winter -- maybe people sort of do, too, now?

I moved a year and half ago but didn't he take on a partner at his firm? I remember reading on AL.com that he was in a tough divorce at some point. Wondering if bringing on the parter was part of selling his practice to move somewhere else.

On a personal note, the company that I used to work for was located next to his office. On one occasion he walked over and joined our fundraising events and made a donation. He was always pleasant and I wish him luck in whatever he ends up doing.

For a short period, the practice was operating as Pitman and Petro. Now it's just Petro, Pitman is out of the picture. Google will lead you to various rumors regarding what happened.

I am curious as to what kind of illegal fireworks would have caused this type of explosion. That is intense.

From the City of Athens,AL…
Athens firefighters rescued a woman tonight who was swimming inside a 70-foot high water tank filled with 350,000 gallons of water.
The woman, who is not being identified, broke into a fence barrier and climbed the ladder to the top of the tank on Elm Street. A retired Athens Police Officer, Doug Duran, who lives nearby, saw her and contacted authorities.
Police, firefighters and Water Dept. personnel responded. Firefighters Hunter Campbell and Coty Collins climbed the tank and found her swimming inside and convinced her to come to them. They secured her with a harness, got her over the edge and walked down the ladder with her.
Police Chief Floyd Johnson said officers are carrying her for a mental evaluation.
Water/Wastewater Department Manager Jimmy Junkin said personnel will drain the tank tonight and remove any debris.
