You Think You Have Problems

The B93 country music birthday bash is a yearly event put on by a local radio station out at the Ionia County Fairgrounds. It usually draws up to 80,000 people. This year, we had heavy rains Friday night, and there were whispers of canceling the show, but being such a big event and all...

Saturday morning, the rains had moved out, they decided that the show would go on, come on down and park your cars in this field, everyone... and, as people enjoyed the music, all that rain ran into the Grand River, and they couldn't stop what happened next.

You have to see it to believe it.

Although the crest of the water has passed, those cars are stuck there until Wednesday. The noon news counts almost 1,100 cars in that field - and some were completely submerged, which, of course, means they are totally destroyed.

No one has counted the number of lawyers lining up to litigate this yet, but you can bet B93's insurance company is going to take a big hit for this one.
