Pebbles? Oh, Right...Pebbles!

  • Loose pebbles from roofs caused downtown windows to pop out and crash to the ground in Friday's storm, Chicago officials said Monday.

    The pebbles are placed on top of buildings to reflect sunlight, said Jose Santiago, director of the city's Office of Emergency Management. Friday afternoon's storm, which whipped up 77 mph winds, kicked up an unusual amount of pebbles, causing them to strike skyscraper windows, including a few at Willis Tower, Santiago said.

    The wind was sporadic and blew in unusual directions, Santiago said.
"Unusual directions"? You mean like from west to east? Up to down? Seriously, this is the best they can come up with? Seventy-seven windows across the street from City Hall, and all they can come up with is "unusual amount of pebbles." Nothing at all about the garden paths and loose fill on top of Shortshanks' green paradise.

And the media just eats this crap up. How's that taste guys?

Did you really think that cowardly peckerhead , so called mayor would own up to the shit he caused !

You'll probably have better luck getting a boulder to bleed real blood.

It's the way of the Cowardly Criminal at shitty hall on the 5th floor.

Fuck You daley ! Your day is coming, hopefully soon !!!

Was that Jose Santiago, director of the city's Office of Emergency Management? Or Jose Santiago, director of the city's Office of Bullshit Cover-up Management?

If the skyscapers were never built, then we would not have the broken windows.

Really OT--
A blue shirt helping a citizen in Wicker Park was clipped by a falling tree branch and saw stars. He was taken to Illinois Masonic to be checked out. Speedy recovery to them.

What a ridiculous explanation. I've heard of falling icicles in the winter, but has anyone in 001 or 018 had a pedestrian injured or a vehicle damaged by these "pebbles"? I don't think so. Sears Tower is over 30 years old, I assume the weather stripping is too. Failure of the weather stripping sounds like a more logical explanation to me

I worked summers in high school and college for my unlce in the sheet metal and roofing business. He always said that roofers who use gravel on flat roof do so to makt it more expensive to replace, and, when giving an estimate, you grind a few with your heel and you'll have a service call next rainfall...sounds like a shortshanks deal to give his cronies more business.
