No such luck for me. The bike had to weather the storm in the parking lot at work. At least it didn't fall over. Didn't pack my rain gear today so I'm just wating for the rain let up a bit before I make a break for home to a house with no electricity.

Speaking of airplane stuffs, they're going to have a couple WWII planes in my backyard taking folks up on rides this weekend. I don't have the paper in front of me, but it's a bomber and a little fighter. It may be these guys: http://www.collingsfoundation.org/cf_schedule-wof.htm although Columbus isn't on the schedule. I tell ya, if I had excessive disposable income, that looks like it'd be mighty fun!

(Bolton Field Airport, This Weekend, $450 for the bomber, and something crazy(er) for the fighter ride)

Sounds like fun.... but I'll settle for whipping the Tenere for an hour or so.

Sitting at home thinking that's a long ride there and back home. In other words being a big sissy.

Dang powers been out at the house since 5pm. Boooooring.

And yes, the night ride at the beginning of the month was awesome; y'all missed out.

This one has me intrigued. Night trail riding doesn't sound as fun as night dirt roads, but I'm up for trying anything. Put me in the YES depending on day category.

Thanks Matt. What a waste of a day. Took off 1/2 day of work drove to the Iron Pony spent $100.00 on crap for Kyle, drove to look at some used trackmaster tires that a guy had on CLs that looked good in the pictures but were JUNK. Went to QSL just in time for the storm to kill the power and make a muddy mess out of everything so no races. Got ready to head home and 71 was a traffic cluster fuk. Lots of trees and power lines down on the way home on RT 3. Looks like the worst of the storm stayed south on Loudonville.

Wow, quite a storm that just blew through! We lost at least a dozen trees. One took out our electric lines and is currently blocking the drive about 100yds from the house. House and workshop seem to have survived without any damage. Looks like the chainsaw (and me) are going to get a workout tomorrow. Hope everyone else out there is safe!

In laws called and said they lost another "branch" and asked if I could come help chop it up in the morning.

This was the last "branch" that came off that tree.

Looks like what I'll be doing tomorrow at my sisters, but hers' is on top of a small barn. Oh, the fun. I'm surprised I have power since I'm usually the first person in the dark.
