If you treat luck as your dump stat, you can do amazing neurosurgery. Fallout taught me that.

As a central Alabama resident, I really hope someone holds the Governor accountable for this epic failure in storm management.

There are only two major highways in the state -- 65 and 85; apparently that was two roads too many to keep clear.
 
2014-01-30 11:24:32 PM
That's a very hilly walk he made, especially considering he wasn't wearing the best shoes for a hike like that.  I was wondering how long it took for his hands to thaw for the surgery.

I could see the Hero tag on this one.

That's more than dedication to a job, that's dedication to saving a life regardless of the possibility of peril for his own.  Not jumping in front of a bullet for a stranger dramatic, but heroic nonetheless.

Per my opinion, of course.

Good for him and I'm glad that the patient is doing OK.  I can't do brain surgery and I sure couldn't imagine it after walking 6 miles in 3 inches of snow...and for everyone who says 3 inches of snow isn't a lot, it isn't.  Until you have to walk 6 miles in it and then perform brain surgery.

Walking in freezing temperatures?  During a snow storm?

I don't think they do.

But if they did, I would say those people are heroes, too, to do that to provide for their families.  That's serious sacrifice.

Dr Zenko Hrynkiw was at Brookwood Medical Center in Tuesday morning

The doctor was hardly the only person to talk miles through the storm.


Makes me wonder if Hrynkiw is a correct spelling.

I was in that storm, took me 11 hours to get home from Atlanta some 25 miles into the burbs. My normal commute is about an hour give or take 5-15 minutes.depending on traffic, no highway. Front wheel drive, low gear, and new(ish) tires - as well as patience for the idiots - got me home without a scratch on me or the car. But it would have been easier if I'd just been able to hop on a train.Just glad I didn't have to sleep at the office with my boss, who got stuck despite only living five miles away from the office. At one point I had to cut open a Tauntaun and sleep inside for warmth while I waited for traffic to die down.

If I ever need any surgery that requires either of those, just let me die, I'll be better off.

If you're going to say "and I thought he smelled bad on the outside," forget about the brain surgery.

There are a few more than that. 280 in particular comes to mind. Also 11 and 31. Then there are the interstates... The Red Mountain Expressway was also a mess, and ambulances were having trouble getting to St. Vincent's Hospital in Birmingham as a result.

It was a mess, but as much as I really do detest the doctor governor, I honestly have no idea what he could have done in this situation. Unlike Atlanta, the Birmingham area's forecast really was botched. They were predicting this mess for Montgomery right up until snow started falling in Birmingham, and Montgomery was prepared. As far as I can tell, the response has been good from both government (with the exception of Leeds) and private citizens (and I have been TREMENDOUSLY impressed by how folks just came together and got shiat done). Folks were being shuttled to shelter as best they could be. Food was being passed out by the National Guard to those who needed it. Tow trucks were running. Me being practically useless, I was walking up and down my street in Argo with coffee, blankets, food and my cell phone in case anyone needed it. Some of the neighbors were on four-wheelers driving people from their cars to nearby houses and to City Hall. Everyone kinda made do with what they could, and I think it could have been MUCH worse. Now that the snow is melting, everything is being cleared up pretty quickly. I doubt there'll be much if anything left over by Saturday.

Personally, I've got plenty of other stuff to go after Bentley for-- like refusing to expand Medicaid and heavily resembling Mr. Burns.

Indeed. Someone who took his oath very seriously. It's rare these days, and I've seen so many dick doctors down here who are only ever about a paycheck that I'm just so pleasantly shocked to see that we have one of the good ones. We need more like him.
