    All this going on is down stream of the root of the problem, at least back east. I wonder if "we" will ever confront Pharma's lobbying, the industry they represent, and it's grip on our policy makers. They cash in on both sides of the issue, both the addiction and the treatment. Pills kill. Opioids are the up-stream issue around here. Legal Opioids. They lead to heroin and fentynol addictions, crime and ultimately deaths at a tremendous cost to us. Real costs to the tax payers, and emotional costs as we watch our friends bury their children.

    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    /s

    The visibility of the homelessness/drug addiction problem in Seattle is disgusting and burdening. But I bet you would find NH healthcare workers, cops and businesses who are equally disgusted and burdened by having to deal with OD's and addicted communities.
    (NH mortality rate by opioids is second. Take heart though, you're not as bad as WV).
    I could give a fuck about junkies dying. Just dont be sleeping on the street. We dont have homeless shitdicks walking around doing homeless shitdick stuff. Its better that way.

    How is this "Travis Berge" allowed back on the street? According to that KOMO report he's been arrested around 50 times..

    Thanks for being honest. Rings of selfish ignorance to my ear. I'll wager you don't know any addicts living in cars. I'm jealous. OTOH maybe your anger is directed at someone who has disappointed you. Hope you get to understanding.

    Surprisingly we have a homeless issue here in W2 and I think the same thing - being homeless here in the winter is not a good time. We do have a sleep center and that is all it is - no loitering during the day. The conestoga huts have a bed and privacy but no heat or water. It's something, I guess.

    This is what we had the winter of 2016/17:




    this is what we have now:



    Those garbage cans are for storing belonging during the day. They have locks. People can leave their stuff but can't hang out until the gates open again at dusk.

    We have 31 huts that are always at capacity some with 2 people in them. Those that aren't lucky enough to get a spot for the night are turned away to find shelter elsewhere. We just passed an ordinance that makes sleeping in planting strips and on sidewalks illegal.

    KOMO NEWS = FOX West. Reporters have quit for refusing to do editorials written for them the them by management. Not too biased. Right.

    This is so naive. I watched my buddy bury his 19 year old son this fall, a kid I knew since birth, who went to get some milk a mile from his house. An addict in "recovery" who was mixing his Suboxone with other pills so he could still get high fell out behind the wheel, crossed the double yellow and killed him in a head on. The victims of this epidemic are not just the users dumb-ass.
    No shortage of these on youtube.

    It's a hell of a lot colder in New Hampshire than Walla Walla. You would be a human popsicle without heat or extreme weather gear. Just sayin

    Specifically, what about that KOMO story is false or biased?

    I dunno, I just looked at the averages and they look pretty close. Most winters we struggle to break 20 degrees for weeks on end and often are below 0. I've experienced multiple days of minus 10 or greater. But it's all samey-samey esp. when you're underweight, an alcoholic, out of shape, or on drugs. You're body isn't going to regulate like a healthy person.

    The sleeping center shuts down at a certain temp and warming centers open up.

    Yeah, texting caused him to pass out behind the wheel. Bupes and benzos together depress the central nervous system much like alcohol and opioids. You are a real piece of shit human being.

    You know how it is... where they take the "official temp" is not always representative of the temps around the area esp. when the area includes mountains and valleys. At my house the temp will be 10 degrees warmer than my barn. House sits on the bench, barn is on the valley floor. It's like Seattle - official temp monitor for the area is SeaTac. Not even close to the downtown core or most of the neighborhoods. Our official temp station is also the airport at 1191 ft. Downtown is 942ft. Where I live it's 433ft - cold air drains off the benches and settles on the valley floor.

    <shrug> I only know what my thermometer says and I record the daily temps because I'm a weather geek so that's what I know..............

    the homeless problem has nothing to do with being "homeless"
    politicians and other idiots want you to belive they can solve the homeless problem with tax dollars and a magic wand by giving people a place to live

    being homeless is the end result of a society that does not give a shit
    mental illness is the biggest driver, as a society we give lip service, provide a hot line to call, and other bullshit to pretend that we really care about someone
    until we start addressing health care and mental health on a large scale we will continue on the current path

    drug and alcohol addiction is the other major force
    very few people fully understand addiction and the way it works, its easy to label someone an addict, but answering the why and providing the proper help is the hard part of the equation
    treatment is the wrong way to look at it, you are never going to treat someone, you can help them though

    all these problems are going to get much worse in every city and small town
    we are really really good at putting blinders on and pretending it doesn't exist

    denver right now has two waring factions, one wants to continue with a camping ban the other wants to remove the camping ban
    They are raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to fight for what they believe in
    this is the political society we have created, where we throw millions of dollars around to prove a point
    if some of that money these two sides are pissing away was used to provide drug, alcohol, and mental health services we'd be doing much better
    but instead it's easier to run ad campaigns and hire consultants to spew endless bullshit

    I recently spent some time with two individuals trying to stay sober, they were wacked out on methadone when we met, in one instant they would be totally coherent and the next they would be nodding off and drooling
    it was very disturbing, the idea that either of these two people are going to stay sober or live long meaningful lives was worthless, but I wish them well

    It's not a contest! I'm just saying that's what I experience. Come on.....besides the "average" is what has occurred over years. I'm sure it's shitty to be homeless no matter the temps.
