The original message, seen above, was reposted by at least 19 other Twitter users as of Thursday afternoon. One user playfully responded by asking the department to make a swift repair before Jesus returns.

The official Twitter account of the District of Columbia’s Department of Transportation.

“Sorry, we will no longer be able to fill your potholes after Saturday,” read one Tweet posted on the agency’s account at about 1 p.m. Thursday.

Minutes later, someone with access to the agency’s account posted: “I guess I should have been a little less subtle. I was kidding. Or was I?”

‘Rapture’ Prediction Brings Wide-Ranging Response

:: Judgment Day on May 21st? ::

We picked up a pamphlet in Union Square to see why so many people are talking about the world ending on May 21, 2011.

It turns out the theory comes down to two numerological proofs.

The first proof is based on Genesis 7:4, when God said to Noah: “Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”

When God referred to seven days, he meant both seven days and seven thousand years, because “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” The flood occurred in 4990 BC. Seven thousand years later is 2011.

The second proof looks at the significance of the number of days between the Crucifixion and May 21, 2011.

There are 722,500 days between these dates. 722,500 is a significant number because it is composed of the significant numbers 5x10x17x5x10x17. Five signifies redemption; ten signifies completion; and 17 signifies heaven. The numbers represent the day of redemption (5) and the Christian era (10) and the ascent to heaven (17) — and these factors are doubled for added significance.

We’ll know for sure in 27 days.

Spillway Opens to Divert Floodwaters…Morganza spillway opens for first time in 38 years to release water from swollen Mississippi River

Engineers lift emergency spillway’s gates in Louisiana to avert a potential disaster in New Orleans, but thousands of homes will be flooded in populated Cajun country.

…Morganza Floodway to open Saturday or Sunday

Protecting cities likely to mean swamping rural areas; oil tankers could get shut down.

BUTTE LAROSE, La. — Some 400 more people in a Civil War town were told to evacuate Thursday, while downriver thousands hurriedly packed ahead of an expected decision to flood their farms and towns in order to protect Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

~ What is lost in this heartbreaking story is the people of BUTTE LAROSE, La. I was watching HLN & watched a man who owned a dance studio. They also showed this town meeting. He was under the impression that the water may rise 3-4 feet. At this meeting Col. Ed Fleming leaned over a podium and warned the crowd gathered at a volunteer fire station that where they were standing was projected to be swamped by up to 15 feet of water from Mississippi River flooding. The crowd let out a collective gasp.

It broke my heart in two,because the report showed him packing up every little thing, knowing there would be nothing left when all was said & done.

The response:

“From the ground?” an incredulous resident shouted at the meeting Thursday.

“From the ground,” replied Fleming, head of the corps’ New Orleans district.


LAKE PROVIDENCE, La. (AP) — In an agonizing trade-off, Army engineers said they will open a key spillway along the bulging Mississippi River as early as Saturday and inundate thousands of homes and farms in Louisiana’s Cajun country to avert a potentially bigger disaster in Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

About 25,000 people and 11,000 structures could be in harm’s way when the gates on the Morganza spillway are unlocked for the first time in 38 years.

Opening the spillway will release a torrent that could submerge about 3,000 square miles under as much as 25 feet of water but take the pressure off the downstream levees protecting New Orleans, Baton Rouge and the numerous oil refineries and chemical plants along the lower reaches of the Mississippi.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala– For those of us who didn’t lose a loved one in the April 27th tornado outbreak, it might be easy to become numb to the number of people who died that day.

But for the Jones family of Concord, the pain is all too real.

25-year-old Garrett Jones remains in UAB Hospital. He’s in critical condition.

His wife, Jennifer, will be buried Sunday. The couple had been married since August.

They tried to ride out the storm in their home’s bathroom. Both were found yards from where their home once stood amidst piles of debris.

The Jones family is familiar with the pain of losing a child. Garrett’s older brother died of cancer a decade ago.

For father Frank Jones, it would be easy to be mad at God.

He’s not.

But he asks for your prayers in this difficult time.

A memorial fund has been set up to help with Garrett Jones’ medical bills. Go to any Wells Fargo Bank to donate.
