    Not too exciting right now. The gusts are supposed to be around 30-40 mph. Tonight it picks up to 60 mph gusts going on through tomorrow. Watch out for high profile trucks on the highways making erratic moves. There are crews on standby in case of downed powerlines. There was bad traffic in Boston as suddenly they decided a cracked window at the John Hancock building needed to be replaced. There were several road closures because of it.

    And winter is here... Buffalo, NY is getting ready for a blizzard. It must suck to live there in the wintertime. Damn lake effect snow. :blink:

    I heard on NPR about a semi getting lifted up out of the Westbound lane on 90 near Buffalo, and landing in the Eastbound lane of I90... without touching the median at all.

    :eek:


    5-6 years ago I was in Wyoming, on my way to Cali, when the highways were shut down due to high winds. Two days earlier in Indiana a truck hauling a pre-fab house got blown over on the road. Serious stuff.

    I helped him out in getting him unsuspended. Yeah, that tree hit so hard, it knocked his side molding off and made the passenger wiper all crooked like.

    And since he's a newb, and figured out how to post pics, and use a digicam, are you going to bust his balls like you all did KuteGurlie69?

    Glad that you're okay! I just heard that a woman died in her SUV this afternoon in Rochester, NY. A tree branch fell on her vehicle. :(

    wind sucks...I went for subway last night, and I'm glad I did cause a big ass branch fell off the tree I was parked under right where my car WAS sitting. I am now parked up by the garage between the two houses.

    Thank God I was hungry when I was last night. :nod:

    Please stay away from all parking lots that are filled with shopping carts.....I just got back from Walmart, and saw about 3 shopping carts roll into cars.......kinda funny, I was parked surrounded by Vans and SUVs, with the wind to my back, but pulling out, carts were rolling everywhere....just keep a heads up.

    global warming is a fake issue created by tree hugging hippies to scare the public into giving them money and reversing the flow of evolution (ie: back to the stone age)
