Be careful with the storms

On my way home from work a few minutes ago I was almost hit by a large falling tree. Good thing I have 4 wheel disk brakes in my truck :) be careful in the High winds in the next few days.

the wind resistance hitting the front end would have slowed it down 10ft sooner!

Yea, it must be really windy over there..

I was in Princeton, NJ this morning(aka tree city or some bs). Glad I am back in Fultonville tonight (upstate NY). I have my landing gear down and the wind is still slapping the trailer hard as heck.

Its the end getting near Dec.21 2012 is getting close. In a few days the election will start the economic decline and the weather will wash it all into the sewers. The Mians were right all along.
Drive safe and batten down for a bad few days/

Had to cancel some guided layout boat duck hunts the next couple days. Hurts the pocketbook but chances are even if my boats didn't sink most hunters wouldn't enjoy shooting ducks off the crest of a 25' roller. Pussies...

Those brutal wind is wick. Have hard time keep Brickwagon on highway lane. Once you feel wind it push you other lane.


Pray for those people in East Coast.
