when it rains it pours
Inside Gary, Indiana Fire station #10 abandoned since Sept 2008. Amazing how fast it has rotted in 6 years. The great flood that hit the Chicago area on Sept 11-14, 2008 caused the stations closure ahead of the other stations in the large city that have since been closed, only FEMA paid for this station to be rebuilt, but for reasons only Gary, Indiana knows it hasnt.

As we all know I like trains, I always have since I was about 3 years old, but finding out what I just learned hits me pretty hard. Today as I was going through some early digital pictures that were taken ten years ago in high school I ran across this picture of me and this girl I was friendly with back then. I havent heard from her, or heard her name in years. I went to Facebook like someone normally would and came across a memorial page for her. She was killed in 2012 on 95th street, but I really wanted to know how she died. Doing a google search of her name brought me a pic of her face. Sadly on her way to work she was killed by a Metra train, but either the news station, or maybe my mind wouldnt go any further to find out if she was distracted, or pushed. So looking back at this pic, and listening to a sad song, I just wonder what could of been. Man so many people I knew in highschool just ten years ago are dead now, its just so sad. This woman could of gone on to be a model. R.I.P Gardenia.

Do not steal my pictures, do not post them anywhere even giving me credit unless you ask me you are stealing! do not photomanipulate them in anyway that's also stealing, you can save them but once you do they do not go back on the Internet unless I say so!

I thought I'd make it but too exhausted from yard-work and sick wife. Stayed around the IHB and BNSF a bit on the way to the store for cold meds! Hope your mayhem went well!
