STRAT...... Dont shoot, they are not out to get ya..

Wires down at Westwick/SR 2, Tualco/SR 203, Tualco/Tualco Loop, Clearview have fire rigs and vehs stuck between multiple lines down, and Im bored out of my mind....

Update, Second set of wires down on tualco road, so that maked 3, and a huge amount of crap on Old Owen rd, the police band says they have stuff flying all around them, and they have been told not to remove anything in the roadway due to large amounts of wires calls...

PUD dispatch is slammed...

Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du
Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du Du

I´m singin´ in the rain
Just singin´ in the rain,
What a glorious feeling,
And I´m happy again.
I´m laughing at clouds
So dark, up above,
The sun´s in my heart
And I´m ready for love.

Let the stormy clouds chase.
Everyone from the place,
Come on with the rain
I have a smile on my face.
I´ll walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin', singin' in the rain.

Dancing in the rain.

I'm happy again.

I'm singin' and dancin' in the rain.

Dancin' and singin' in the rain.

Neighbors lost a huge evergreen. Luck for them it went through their back fence and not through their house.
Link Posted: 2/4/2006 7:36:03 AM EDT
Winds are picking up here, blowing rain and gusts into the 30's at least, probably higher. Starting to see debris blowing around.

Still blowing out here...

My HAM Antenna, and Shortwave Antenna's are no longer, so I will have to come up with another option for next time.

On the brite side, I have been doing the yearly rifle cleaning and have made a dent in it...

I wish I had A AR-15..

We still have power in Edgewood but I just came from Federal Way Lowes and the power is out along with being sold out of generators. I wish I had got a bigger one before now

Damn. I should have bought some generators just for people like you.

BAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! I woke up this a.m. to find three big ass trees blocking our driveway. The way our lot is layed out means I/We were stuck. So I arrange transportation and have to go drop gun money on a feckin' Stihl MS390 Chainsaw w/ 20" bar, and proceeed to get wore the hell out playing tree arborist in the front yard.

Good part is that is over, and we can get out. Bad part is there are four more trees down back in my woods that need cut up too.

Had a power glitch at 4:20 AM (I was mostly awake), then at about 6:20 I heard two loud close booms, followed by another that sounded a bit further away. My guess is 3 transformers blew.
Power then went out at 8:00 AM, and came back at 9:30 AM.

No other problems.

Hmmmm, was you guys shooting out in S. Pierce County? I heard the "neighbors" on the next ridgeline cranking off rounds all day.

Funny that you say that, He was showing it off to us like a proud papa...He mounted a scope in it (wrecked the value for me) and today had a box of 20 rounds wanting to know if I would take him out to zero it one of these days.

I have to admit, It most likely will be a pretty good shooter.

Always a standing invite to do it here, the first time he crawled up the stock and got scope bit pretty hard, hopefully this scope has more eye relief.

You know that we will take you up on that, You have the best gig in town for a 200 yd range.

I went to the eye doc yesterday, and Im going to be sporting some new eys's here pretty soon, which means I get to re-zero my stuff...

Why don't you guys send some of that wind & rain over to some of us East of the mountains. I hope that you all will have power for the game.

Its been a weird winter season....You guys get wind and rain......and we get very little snow, no wind and hardly any rain.
Link Posted: 2/5/2006 6:09:08 AM EDT
Our power came on about 9 hours ago after loosing it Friday night. The yard looks like OdTs with lots of fir braches. We didn't loose any trees but the ones standing around our house survived the '21 blow and Columbus day storm.
