    Ouch.

    Really sorry you biffed, but glad you both got off relatively OK.

    It stormed at Moss Beach last night, thunder, lightning and very heavy rain. I thought of you guys up there. I hope you had better weather...

    Be safe.

    Thanks to Mike54 and Veronica for organizing a great event. The canopy was a nice touch! :freaky

    Thanks also to Holly and Bigger Al for bringing lots of tasty pies. Mmmm! :dg

    And thanks to Jim for the load of wood! You're the man! :kumbaya

    Nice to see everyone, I had a great time. Despite all the threatening clouds, there really wasn't that much rain. Just enough to make it interesting and keep the riff-raff off the roads. :ricky
