    Somebody we know is a "tart". :raabia

    While saving for our first house we lived in the north end of "too scary to investigate". The swat team only showed up once... :hide

    We live there now and have for nearly 25 years. And from my standpoint the cartographer is, at best, an ignorant fuck, and at worst, a racist fuck.

    My wife was really blown away by those pocket thunderstorms yesterday. Literally.
    Heading home out of scandia, in and out of short bursts of rain. Then some "rain chunks" that hurt a bit with a moto helmet. Then I see it ... the water in the two-track is blowin sideways hard ahead of me. No rain but here comes a burst of wind as I flash my brake light and start to pull over leaning into it. Hard. :muutt

    I glance in my left mirror and see her sorta hunched up on the bike and headed for the left DITCH ! :eek1 I didn't know what to think .... did she pass out ? have a seizure ...Orrrr was she hiding from a tornado ? ! All these things flashed through as I made my u-turn to find her upright and up on the opposite side hill paddlin her feet through some slick mud/half grass in the right of way, now making her way to the next approach. What a gal. :sweeti

    Her story goes that she tried to ride it out leaning into it then started to lose the back end to hydroplaning. Mini-van following her and no cars coming so off she went. Scared the shiite out of me, which only made the situation worse when your wife is soaking wet and upset and your all like...WTF ! ? :fight

    After drying out and taking some medicine :beer "we" recounted the lesson and are now living happily ever after.
    Again.
    :kumbaya

    PS - Need better gear.

    Thanks, yes I'm glad it ended well especially since I was partially at fault. ;)

    I'm a man
    But I can change
    If I have to.
    I guess.

    I'll take the fall for this one. Put away both snow shovels, the ice chipper, put tabs on the DR and took it out for a spin. Bah!

    Sorry I removed the snow tires on my new to me truck just days ago. I knew this would happen.

    I escaped to the warmth of Detroit just in time. 75 degrees out here.:deal
