Jbvox

Went to Natomas, Ate at Hooters on Truxel, Shit my pants for days


dannydoz06

This is beautiful 🥲


RelativeMonth3342

No more Hooters on Truxel tho


Highway49

Why is the food at Hooter's so bad?! It's so bad even the pretty servers don't make it worth it...


ronimal

Because Hooters was never about the food. And any halfway decent chef wouldn’t be working there.

City built with pride, Floods come, truth cannot hide, Nature takes control.


djbeardy

Whoa this one is super good. Deep.


ElSteve0Grande

Just like the flood waters


meredithedith0

Maybe we’re boring But we’re getting a Costco! Who cares if it’s beige.


tyrryt1

natomas costco but no costco gas station what a dumb idea


animalcrackers916

You do know it’s easier to build a gas station as an addition instead from scratch? Nice little permit loophole they will exploit later


tyrryt1

I hope so, but there's a chevron being built right next to it already. I'm sure that won't make it easier to build a costco one later.


animalcrackers916

Different property, zoning loopholes 🤫


ForwardStudy7812

Depends


sh4dowfaxsays

Wait, are they still getting one?


MurderinoAmy

Not a haiku, but a question. Is this actually a real photo of Natomas?

omg_bewbz

Thank God. This neighborhood is terrifying and don’t think I could even visit, let alone live there.


thegreatlemonparade

Agreed. But I will say, these have more space between them and more yard than some of the smaller communities I've seen around Sacramento, unfortunately.


usofunnie

About a decade ago we were rental searching, and we turned into this development in natomas somewhere and all of a sudden I felt like everything was going to collapse in on me. You could literally borrow sugar from your neighbors through the bedroom windows, and the streets were so narrow you couldn’t five-point-turn, let alone three. All the houses were 2 stories (or more, I can’t remember) and looming over us. I said no, I can’t live here, we are leaving. No one argued. Same feel as this photo.


Ok_Bid_308

You could probably borrow a little more then sugar through a window


stateworkishardwork

Of course not. Not sure why OP couldn't just post an actual pic of Natomas.


3rd_Degree_Churns

Add a Del Taco in that pic and it's a suburban paradise


cycle_cats

Land of Applebees Sprawling into the abyss Probably will flood


BetchGreen

All you can eat!


duckbutterdelight

Natomas C.A. A little out of the way Might flood tomorrow


ketnose

…BUT I WISH IT DID TODAY HAHAHAHAHAHA


Doomncandy

Oh, Vivarium, Watch out for strage kid, Thanks Natomas..


Loud_Spend3965

The north part of Sac With no real vibe of its own Busy and still lifeless


garibaldi18

Nice. Love the last line!


emasculine

though not haiku, i'm pretty sure this applies too: Little boxes on the hillside Little boxes made of ticky tacky Little boxes on the hillside Little boxes all the same There's a pink one and a green one And a blue one and a yellow one And they're all made out of ticky tacky And they all look just the same And the people in the houses All went to the university Where they were put in boxes And they came out all the same And there's doctors and lawyers And business executives And they're all made out of ticky tacky And they all look just the same And they all play on the golf course And drink their martinis dry And they all have pretty children And the children go to school And the children go to summer camp And then to the university Where they are put in boxes And they come out all the same And the boys go into business And marry and raise a family In boxes made of ticky tacky And they all look just the same There's a pink one and a green one And a blue one and a yellow one And they're all made out of ticky tacky And they all look just the same


turdferguson3891

Interestingly that song was written about a housing development in Daly City. Those ticky tackies are probably worth over a million today.


emasculine

yeah, that's the sad part about all of this


[deleted]

Two million.


EmeraldnDaisies

Goddamn it..You just reminded me about Weeds the show..now I want to binge watch it , but alas no HBO. I hope you're happy with yourself!! Jk


meredithedith0

It’s on Hulu and Peacock. And Freevee according to my Roku app, but I’m not familiar with that app/channel.


EmeraldnDaisies

Ohh I have Hulu, thanks friend!


ryzt900

Took the words out of my mouth


optimaloutcome

About 7 years ago we looked at a house in Serrano. Got out of the car, looked around, and there was a small greenbelt and then a hill and the hill was just blanketed in tile rooftops. This song immediately came to mind. I told my wife I'd still look at the house but I hated it there and would never live there. She agreed. It was a nice house but .. just no thanks.


PM_ME_UR_DERP

Honestly this pic looks like a 3D Space Invaders screen


Sufficient_Space_905

This reminds me of the Weeds theme song. Little boxes


mylopolis

That song was originally about the san francisco hills

In Natomas, swelter, Heat bears down without respite, Concrete jungle grows.

These houses have too much space between them to be in Natomas

Traffic jams all day, Smog clouds the once blue skies, Natomas, farewell

aldy_the_panda

I'm no poet. Chatgpt came up with these "Write a haiku about natomas, CA" Golden sun rises high, Natomas, fields of green grow, Peaceful, serene peace. "Write a haiku about the suburbanization of natomas, ca." Natomas, once green, Now a suburban sprawl thrives, Nature recedes fast.


T8ortots

In Natomas town, Traffic's a never-ending, Comedy of cars. ~ChatGPT


jobs_jobs_jobs

‘Natomas’ a verb Meaning ‘gets lost in endless Identical streets.’


laney_deschutes

I literally Google satellited to make sure this wasn’t a real pic

Train thru Natomas/Will take many to airport/More stops to small shops


byroneil

Concrete and plastic Sacramento fantastic Dining view of you


[deleted]

A haiku (俳諧 ) btw is a three-line poem with 17 syllables. The first line has five syllables, the second seven, and the third five.

MeatloafSlurpee

Is this really Natomas? It looks like Vivarium. Sorry for the non-haiku


rancheroboy

Between two freeways People talk a lot of shit But I like it here


Insertcurehere

Not a haiku, I just wanted to say I love Natomas! Geese fly out to the river every day over my house we have a Daiso and the library is fantastic.


XenosYClark

Ashby once repped us Then sold out to the builders Apartmentgeddon


ButchUnicorn

What is a haiku? It’s saying a lot of things With not many words Alternatively Maybe it’s really Expressing a simple thought


Red-Beaulieu

Not haiku, but quite fitting Some rich men came and raped the land Nobody caught 'em Put up a bunch of ugly boxes, and Jesus People bought 'em And they called it paradise The place to be They watched the hazy sun, sinking in the sea


alcor4ever

krushem2000

Natomas a shithole even Kings got out… haiku? We don’t need a stinking haiku to make a point! Once a shithole always a shithole even a levee break won’t flush them out!


VRrob

Why post a pic from another country?
