    It sure looks like that oil filter might be in harms way for serious off road work. Maybe it's the photo, anyway nice ride.:wink:

    Wow. The sounds the ice falling off the trees is making is unnerving and has awaken me for the second time. I hope anyone who has to go to work stays safe out there, it's going to be a mess out this way.

    At 10:30 last night I heard my car alarm going off. Went to see my very large sugar maple was covered with ice and lying on top of my van. CRAP!!!

    Aw Larry - that stinks!

    I went the other way - sold all the M&Ps and went to Glocks. Interesing, tho, that when I went to TDI last fall, more M&Ps there than anything. And me with a 1911 :norton

    All except the DRZ400, every time I rode that thing, I felt like I was sliding off the back.

    All last night I kept getting woke up from all the ice and limbs around the 'hood falling and expected at any minute for one of the trees to come through my house but by the time 5:30 rolled around, all the ice was on the ground and all our trees still standing.

    The dog on the other hand is a little inconvenienced as she is finding it very hard to lay land mines standing on ice!

    Dang, that sucks!

    (Do you have pictures?)

    Does the yard slope one way or the other? Every turd laid would just slide off into the neighbor's yard. Hope your yard isn't the lowest spot on the block...

    Last bad ice storm my neighbor's tree, which I had told her to cut down since it was rotten in the middle, broke in half and fell on my truck. Damn thing never ran right again. The other half finally fell over in a bad windstorm, this time onto her house. Poetic justice I thought.

    Day 5 of the flu. I made it to work about 840 only to sit in my truck and feel the fever spike again and get sick. This sucks. Anyone have any home remedies to feel like myself again?

    I always start taking lots of vitamins when I get sick. Airborne has a nice-tasting dissolvable mix designed to boost the immune system. Could just act as a placebo but I like to think it helps me get over it quicker.

    I forgot about airborne. My old boss swore by that stuff. I have been trying the OJ and lots of sleep routine.

    Yowsers, I am a light weight so it would put me out for the night that's for sure.

    Thanks guys. I just felt like whining for a minute.

    Damn, Larry's ride got tattoo'd! That sucks.

    Last night a kid at work with a 1-week old Mustang parked under a tree that was starting to sag, he moved it and 2 hours later the whole tree came down, would have crushed his fancy new ride.

    I could hear branches snapping and trees coming down all night last night in bed...going to be a long fuggin spring clearing my trails.
