Snowing here but not sticking thank God. Kinda slick out as it was sleeting when I ran out to get breakfast at 6:30 this morning. Other than that all is well on the western front.

This whole situation proves that most people are wrong, I don't have a screw loose.
Mine are in the ankle. 3 inside of it,and 13 pins and a plate on the little bone. Little bone broke over 8-10" and the big one broke in 2 places inside the ankle making a point. Basically 2 45 degree breaks one going each direction. Graduated on crutches. Took about 6 months to get out of the cast,another couple in a walking cast,then about 9 months after that for my leg to get back to the same size as the other. The first couple years were the worst with bumps and storm pain. Even then it's just dull aches for me. Anymore and I barely notice unless it's real bad or I want to.

Not that anyone cares, but we havent had any snow yet, just lots of rain and 60+mph wind here on the water. My concern is some VERY mature maple trees in our yard
And i don't have any fasteners in my body

Any chance of them hitting a structure on their way down?

My neighbor has a 30 foot blue spruce lying on her roof. She is out of town and will have a big surprise when she gets back.

Merry Halloween? Several inches this morning, they actually plowed the street!


These were taken a 5pm today so you can imagine what it was like at 6am.

Lots of discussion on the Killboy thread about this one. I think this is this the one where a rider later wrecked on leftover oil/debris and got hurt really bad ?

Why is he a "dumbass, getting his just rewards"?

He was helmeted and other than the pants, well geared. He obviously rode there from somewhere, given the luggage, so he's not a total poser.

He blew a corner after dragging hard parts.

You ever blow a corner? I have.

There but for the grace of God go I, you, everyone on this forum.

Bad karma to mock him.

Interesting series of shots though, and a shame about the Vette.
