Stole a couple chainsaws from dad a couple weeks ago. I know what I'm doing this weekend.

We had a similar day last fall. That, plus all the beetle killed pines around here, makes me wonder if wood gas would be a good idea for ecomodding.

Be careful!

On a completely non-vehicle related note, this kind of weather has me wanting to trade my phone in and get one that has an FM radio on it. I don't care if it's an old phone. When we had that storm here and all the trees started falling down it was after a terrible wind storm and then a heavy snow. The whole valley is fed by one data line that feeds everything including all internet, cable TV, land lines and cell phone lines that aren't off of satellite. As a result, that line was affected and the only way of knowing what was going on was to listen to the radio. But ironically, my only radio was my car's radio, and the authorities were telling people to stay out of their cars since there were so many getting crushed by falling trees.

Shilling for Google? You'd be less dangerous with a chain saw in your hands.

You're hitting some zombie threads at random.

Since you ask though, click where it says 'Enhanced by Google' in the upper left, type and press Enter.

Else if you wish to avoid the evil empire, use your preferred search engine and preface with INURL:Ecomodder.com or whatever.

All cell phones have an Am/Fm radio in them, just for some reason they are turned off/blocked in most american cell provider networks. There are downloadable APPS or get an unlocked phone. Both of my Nokias have them ditto forall my old samsungs. There's also an APP for hazards or incoming bad weather that doesnt use cell reception.

That doesn't look like fun. A bit north of you we spent the weekend XC skiing in the streets and enjoying pints at the local brewery.

....and a bit South, it's been gray and rainy all this time.

My brother's phone line has been 'busy' for three days. Maybe this is why?
