you going to look like this soon?

Already do. Took me two trips to get my freshly mounted Mickey Thompson Drag Slicks in the house.

Rockies? Trust me, there'* plenty more coming. More than enough to get over the Rockies.

Freshly mounted slicks are not suitable for public presentation at this point.

And the power just flickered. Twice. I may be out for the night if this keeps up.

I was speaking with Bill on the phone when his power went out.

It was funny listening to him tripping over all the Superchargers laying all over the floor.
He won't be posting for a while. :(

Please don't send it my way! I would prefer to keep the weather just the way it is here.

Pfft...you guys need to learn to deal with the wind...100km/h gusts are regular activity here, and 50-60 km/hr sustained winds are nothing to write home about. Record gust in Lethbridge was 171 km/h...pretty impressive considering we are nowhere near an ocean.
