Were you guys around for that one storm in 1996 which shut the city down? I remember I was living out at Peterson during that storm and was glad I could just walk to work from my barracks during that time...lol

The one in 96 shut down all of the power in my neighbor hood I was sick at the time and only 3 years old luckily I was at my grandparents in security during that one, the one in 97 I do remember though. It was crazy big. Lost power in our house and we all stayed warm by sitting around the fire

This is what I've been fighting all morning. Said to hell with going to work today. Knocked it down with the jeep, then pounded it into submission with the ford Taurus.


Got the cows out of their shed. That was a drift, not the worst one todate, but still a doozie...


Got a new puppy last weekend too...
