    Yeah, nice storm. Wish I wasn't at work :(

    Of course, being on the bike, while exciting and totally surreal - is also wet and full of gravity and pavement.

    Sure you didn't have butter today? maybe it was your tummy going crazy, not sure about the light but that could explain the thunder sound.

    We had a storm last night south of us. A customer dealership was having a tent sale. It snapped the center two poles and parts of the tent blew 100 feet away. Funny shit, except I had to go redo the phone system.

    The storm was crazy last night. About 10 mins of 50+mph winds to start, then a full on thunderstorm, then sunny (yeah, sunny!), then another thunderstorm. Of course I lost power after the wind! Nothing like coming home from work, grab a beer from the fridge, turn on the tv and the tv turns off....:lol:

    I just found myself an old PC UPS with a bad battery, yanked it, and replaced it with an old car battery (hydrogen production be damned!). Can't wait till the next good storm to get some use out of it!
