Hoboken Breakfast Nuggets: 10/4/2010

10/4/2010:

Hope everyone had a nice relaxing (and dry) weekend! Some tidbits for you to digest this morning:

Hoboken floods; But disabled cars still get ticketed

The rain from the remnants of tropical storm Nicole may have been much worse in other areas of the northeast, but Hoboken still had a couple moderate flooding episodes in the usual areas. Some locations were bad enough that flooding damage occurred to some vehicles, rendering them un-drivable. However, several residents noted that despite the flooding, the Hoboken Parking Utility still issued parking tickets to the damaged cars. One local mechanic had a full inventory of cars awaiting repairs from the flooding damage.

Net-net: The city can’t fix the problems, yet still kicks you when you’re down…

Cute cat found; Resembles Charlie Chaplin!

Hoboken resident Vinnie found this lost or abandoned black & white kitten (about 3-4 months old) in the Fiore’s parking lot this past weekend. He said this “Charlie Chaplin” look-alike kitten is very playful and energetic, and would make a great companion for anyone! Email Hoboken411 if you’d like to get in touch with Vinnie.

Net-net: You can’t resist this cute kitty!

Dreary, cold & rainy start to week

Speaking of rain – the first three days of this week will not be nearly as nice as this past weekend. Generally cloudy, drizzly and depressing!

The three or four days of on & off precipitation isn’t supposed to be threatening in any way – but there is a coastal flood advisory in effect until 11pm tonight, due to astronomically high tides.

Net-net: It can always be worse.

Hoboken Redwings remain undefeated, win 41-7

Congratulations to the Hoboken Redwings Varsity Football team, who crushed Ferris 41-7 on Saturday night.

The Redwings next opponent is Hudson Catholic (1-3) this Friday, October 8th, and based on their lackluster performances and weak offense – Hoboken should roll to an impressive 5-0 (unless they royally screw up!)

Net-net: Impressive. Hoboken has already won more games this season than all of last year (3-7)!

That Maximum was parked illegally to begin with. I don’t have a problem with them ticketing a car like that. That Maximum was on the corner where someone always parks overnight, even though it is pretty much on the crosswalk. Usually, they get up and move the car before ticketing starts… play with fire and you get burned.

Remember when the police gave a ticket to the car that was crushed by the falling boulder on Sinatra when the blasting was going on at Stevens for the Babbio Center construction?
