Default Bad weather

Just hoping anyone in those 60+ tornado's down south are OK.
Not that you would be able to post anyway...just think-in about you all.

Not in the path of the tornadoes, but sitting under almost a foot of fresh snow here in southern WI.

Woke up to 2" in Vermont and ended the day with 6". I hear your storm will hit us Friday or Sat. Thanks! :-)

Yup, areas around us here in VT got 16"+. We have another two storms headed for us for Sat. and Sunday. I enjoy being a guy with a snowblower, but filling it up 2-3 times a day sucks.... I'm only 31, so I can handle it, but I often take care of my older neighbors also... where are the kids in our neighborhood?!?

Hey "D":
Janie and I live about 14 miles from the place where the tornado killed 3 in western Kentucky. The day after the storm we went to our Tennessee Mountain Home and drove right through another place that had been hit. The Govenor of TN said it looked like someone took brillo and scrubbed the ground. He was correct.

Default Good to hear from you

I was a little worried about you folks...I have seen the devastation of a tornado first hand, it is always just plain O'l bad. The only thing left was the copper water line and 2 lolly columns comming out of the slab. Then 3 lots away...a house had some broken windows.
Glad to hear your safe, the biggest thing around here is the cold, 8 degrees right now with lots of wind....I'm going to finish framing a roof today with a friend of mine.

Default Now

So now it's Hurrican Ike, look out Texas. I'm just glad I only have to deal with snow up here...comming soon.

On the upside , it does create a lot of work.
