  1. oh no, oh no, oh no! This is not good, not good, not good!! It’s definitely a sign from H-shem! The three weeks are going to be upon us soon, coincidence?? I think not!

  2. hope there wasn’t any sifrei torah in there. All joking aside It is quite serious, and there are many questions to ask here.

  3. I believe R’ Abadi is in a battle with the DEP and is waiting for them to give him an answer as to where the shaimos can legally be buried and therefor was storeing the shaimos in trailers till it can get burried.
