Ann Arbor once every 17 years Cicada attack is at full force now. Sounds like a constant drone. I bet you can hear it in Hines Drive near the Plant. But as every here knows "Hines Drive is closed from Ann Arbor Trail to Outer Drive."
I am low key disappointed the cicadas aren't out west and I'm missing the show. I know we have a varient out here, I remember seeing them as a kid. Not sure where they are in their cycle.

You're too kind! We're called Betty Bangs, and my big sister is the lead singer. It's a great time. I'm sure there's clips out there, but recording and getting our originals up on Spotify and Apple Music is a fall priority.

Here is a link to a live stream benefit concert we did for a local arts council earlier this year. Fast forward to 53:30 as we're the 2nd act (though the first group - Jesse Blankenship Band - are dear friends.
You can also find us on Facebook at facebook.com/bettybangs

I sincerely appreciate all the support here!
That's awesome. Let us know when your recording drops!

Everyone else, Let's give some payback! If you find more of the Betty Bangs, share it!

I can relate with the poor peoples of Map after suffering flooding for 3yrs in a row(found out last year was because of a dumb ass neighbor redirecting water on his property without permits,town fixed it and charged him!) hope all goes well with minimal hardship for all the hardworking folks of Detroit and area.
Ours shows today as the date they start, with a blend date of 7/01....hoping it makes it down the line by Friday!

They're all good.

Only lost about 90 from their production count so not too big a hit.
Was more a safety concern that a production concern.
I must be 1 of the 90. Had a blend of 6/25 and nothing has moved to "Built" yet. Hoping is just a paper work got wet issue. Maybe during the day it moves or gets updated tonight.

I'm another of the 90 apparently. 6/25 blend date and still stuck on "In Production." Trying to be patient and keep perspective. Not successful.

As fast as they have been increasing their numbers produced, that downtime won't equate to much added "wait time". I just wish they were working 7 days a week. Maybe they are? I never thought to ask my cousin if they are or not.
Hmmm...Be right back LOL!

It was a madhouse Saturday, Broncos zipping every direction!!!! I have a blend date of today, but nothing shows in production. It would just be too cool for it to be here for the 4th, but, either way, I am GTG!!!!!

They had people at the plant Saturday, but not full production. That could have been due to the flooding or just regular scheduled day, not sure. They are shutting down next week, so they may not have parts to run 7 days anyway?

As expected, things are back to normal at MAP today. Lots of employees weren't able to make it into work as they deal with flooding fallout in their own homes, but not enough to impact production.
