DC DOOM! Man Dies After Tree Falls On Him Near Capitol Building


Cold Weather Kills Many Cherry Blossom Blooms in DC 

WASHINGTON (AP) — Cold weather has killed half of the blossoms on Washington's famous cherry trees just as they were reaching peak bloom, park service officials said Friday. The blooming of the trees is a big tourist draw and is closely watched as a sign of spring in the nation's capital — so much so that National Park Service officials held a news conference Friday to discuss the weather's impact. Gay Vietzke, superintendent of the National Mall and Memorial Parks, said there will still be a "brilliant display of the white and pink blooms," and that the Yoshino cherry trees will be just as "spectacular as ever." That said, visitors who come every year will notice a slight difference after the "wild weather roller coaster" of the past few weeks, which delivered snow after several warm days, Vietzke said. "We do anticipate that there will be some fewer blossoms than normal and the color, therefore, may not be quite as dense as we've seen in past years around the Tidal Basin," Vietzke said, describing the area where the Yoshino cherry trees are clustered.

Man dies after tree falls on him near Capitol building

WASHINGTON — An Architect of the Capitol employee has died after part of a large tree fell on him near the grounds of the Capitol building Tuesday morning. Around 9:15 a.m., a large branch of an American Elm fell onto Matthew McClanahan, a pipefitter for the Architect of the Capitol, at the corner of Independence Avenue and First Street in Southeast. McClanahan was extracted from beneath the tree and taken to the hospital in “extremely critical” condition, officials said. He later died, said a spokesperson for the Architect of the Capitol.McClanahan was working on an irrigation pipe at the time the branch fell on him. The Architect of the Capitol is an agency that preserves and maintains landmark buildings and grounds of Capitol Hill. Independence Avenue between First Street Southeast and Washington Avenue Southwest was closed for most of Tuesday. “Matt was a talented, dedicated pipefitter in the Maintenance Division of Capitol Grounds. Please keep his family, friends and colleagues in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time,” Architect of the Capitol said in a statement. WTOP>>>>>>>

This post was in response to the mockers of God at the Pro-Sodomite Huffington Post who made the observation that England did not sink into the sea after the UK passed homo-marriage laws in March 2014:

Gay Marriage Arrives In Britain – No Flooding Or Winged Horsemen Of Death, So Far  

Well I pointed out the fact that 40 souls have been murdered by MUSLIMS since the 2014 Law was Passed and over 180 have been injured in the 4 MUSLIM terror attacks - all of which took place in 2017.

Those MUSLIMS terror attacks are what some pious souls call the Sword of vengeance of God.

There are other types of God's vengeance - and that would be natural disasters. Maybe 2018 is the year when God will manifest his vengeance in the form of natural disasters.

So far 4 are dead.

DOOM! Bones From Hart Island Mass Graves Washing Up In Local Communities

NEW YORK (CBS New York) — There have been more than a million people buried in the mass graves on Hart Island since 1980, but since the damage of Hurricane Sandy, that’s become a gruesome problem. “My baby was buried right near the water,” Dr. Laurie Grant from the Hart Island Project told CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge. “The babies are buried in small coffins, so there’s about five on top of each other.” Grant’s child was stillborn in 1993, and her daughter is one of more than a million people laid to rest in the country’s largest cemetery. It takes months to schedule a visit there — Grant’s last trip was in 2013, a year after Sandy tore up the seawall, leaving human remains littered along the shoreline. Advocates say it will only get worse. “The cliffs of Hart Island are sort of exposed and bones are washing up on Long Island Sound – that hasn’t been repaired yet,” said Melinda Hunt, the founding director of the Hart Island Project which identified more than 67,000 people buried the…
