But it's only a matter of time until one of those events happen in the shooter drainage and then you multiply everything times about ten in terms of its daily challenges. That is terrifying. And hopefully this will get people that are in the position to make these visionary decisions and actually stop things before they happen to the best of our ability. I mean mother nature we all know can be rather caprices.
