I suspect an idiot like you would need direction to boil water.

Norfolk

Flooding Awareness & Mitigation
Flood Awareness
Like any other low lying coastal area, Norfolk's elevation and its proximity to the Chesapeake Bay and several rivers make it susceptible to flooding. Nearly every year, and sometimes several times throughout the year during periods of heavy rain, hurricanes or nor'easter storms, residential and commercial properties are threatened with the potential of precipitation, tidal and/or wind-driven flooding and/or low-land flooding, particularly in neighborhoods around Norfolk's many waterways.

Common Flooding Types and Definitions

Precipitation Flooding - Occurs when rain intensity exceeds capacity of our storm drain systems due to blockages or naturally depressed elevations.
Storm Flooding - Is caused by storm surges resulting from events such as hurricanes and nor'easters and is directly related to land elevation and proximity to coastline. High tides magnify this storm damage.
Tidal Flooding - Is caused by tidal variations and is directly related to land elevation and proximity to coastline. Tidal flooding may occur on a regular basis due to normal moon cycles and is exacerbated by wind speeds and directions, sea level rise, and other types of flooding.

History of Norfolk
Historic NorfolkNorfolk was established in August 1682 after a 1680 British Act ordered the establishment of a port town of 50 acres in each Virginia county. The “Towne of Lower Norfolk County” was bounded on the east, west and south by the Elizabeth River; and on the north by what is now City Hall Avenue. Norfolk was granted Borough status in 1736. It grew steadily and had a population of 6,000 by the eve of the American Revolution (1775).
On January 1, 1776, British forces bombarded Norfolk from ships anchored off shore. Patriot factions completed the destruction so the British could not house their army here. Only the walls of the Borough Church – today’s St. Paul’s Episcopal – remained standing. But citizens returned and began to rebuild. By 1800, Norfolk’s population numbered 7,000 and Norfolk was the eighth largest town in America.
The 1807 attack on the USS frigate Chesapeake by the HMS Leopard offshore was a contributing factor in President Thomas Jefferson’s decision to ask Congress to declare war on Great Britain, the War of 1812. The ensuing British Navigation Acts and Jefferson’s Embargo Act closed the port and all but crippled the local economy. There was a gradual return to prosperity, leading to Norfolk’s incorporation as a city in 1845.
In 1855, one-third of Norfolk’s resident population died during a yellow fever epidemic. Just seven years later, one of the most famous naval battles in history was played out within view of the city by the first two ironclad battleships – the USS Monitor and CSS Virginia (formerly the USS Merrimac). Two months later, in May 1862, Norfolk was surrendered to Union forces and was under Federal occupation for the remainder of the Civil War.
The world came to Norfolk in 1907 when the Jamestown Exposition, commemorating the 300th anniversary of the first permanent English settlement in America, was held at Sewell’s Point. In 1917 the Exposition grounds became home to the US Naval Operating Base, today’s Naval Station Norfolk. Two World Wars more than doubled the city’s population and a series of annexations ending in 1959 brought Norfolk to her current size.
In recent years revitalization programs have led to changes throughout the city. Our vibrant downtown commercial hub mixes with a menu of cultural offerings, educational opportunities, diverse neighborhoods and a comfortable blend of the old and new. From a tiny town of 50 acres, Norfolk has grown to 61.86 square miles and a population of more than 245,000.

Not sure if his a member of the Bureau of Certified Auto Appraisers (BOCAA) or Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). I'm guessing the latter.

Forrest Gump nailed it with you pal.

GM was circling the toilet bowl__retail customers were staying away from it's dealers in droves, it finance arm was failing as was it's real estate division..
Many GM dealers had become so large that they couldn't get small__I mentioned Bill Heard Enterprises which tubed in 2008 before the bailout. Additionally GM had cancelled Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Saturn.

What your doing is mixing the Chrysler stories up with the GM stories. You're a moron!
