    If we talk THAT kinda hotrod I think we can compete. Ours has a caster that might be more correctly called a camber, but we'll run it anyway.

  3. Random thought thread

    I took my two oldest boys to a man's house to help clean up some downed pine trees. He told me about this storm and also one from 40 years ago in which he saw what he thought was a flock of blackbirds moving in unison, only to realize shortly later it was a tornado with some debris. Then he tells me about his friend that lives near the big creek (100' wide, scuds of wildlife) where this tornado touched down... Said man has a morning ritual of walking out to that creek and climbing into a blind that's about 10' tall where he drinks his coffee, reads his Bible, and shoots coyotes. (If I can only attain that level of...whatever...someday. ) Guess where he was when that tornado touched down a couple days ago? So he's sitting in his blind when he noticed some buzzards circling...lots of them....but, they....they aren't buzzards. TORNADO! It passed about 100 yards from him, with the blind shaking in the wind even though it's posts are 6' deep in the ground to keep it anchored in the flood plain. He said it happened so fast he didn't have time to be scared! I dunno, I bet my RT would allow plenty of fear...

    ^ For SURE. And it leaves out the driving winds and monsoon rains when rescuers were attempting to help. Oh, I might add, that grain bin flew INTO the wind. Not sure if that truck was on the road or parked near the bin and was thrown into the bin which damaged the structure and caused it to buckle and come off it's foundation.

    My boss has a shelter in his garage. It's just not very convenient at a moment's notice. Better than nothing, but the last storm (that ate my Goat) he and family were too late to get to it. I'd rather have a hole UNDER the closet.

    This "town" is where I went to church for many years, and the tornado near the beginning of the vid is tearing up the local cemetery and neighbor's barn (destroyed) . Notice the multi votex and possibly Rear Inflow Jet (ghost train) following it near the end of the vid.

    I've heard of NO injuries. The church about 500' from that pic had about 30 preschoolers, no injuries (after one roof was removed). Power crews are still working on downed lines, I just drove some kids around the block to try to see the touchdown area, but I turned around before getting into the way of those crews. Several homes were severely damaged, but there could easily have been MANY more. It's path was a across the fields where I rode horses as a kid and is about 1 mile behind my mom's house. Estimating it's beginning and end results in about 16 miles It was a load off my mind to know my family was in our BASEMENT (even though slacker daddy hasn't finished it...yet).

    Saw my first tornado about 20 minutes ago, it was about 2 miles E of my workplace. I'll guess it at a F1. Reports of a grain bin on a vehicle and the roadway blocked, responders having a hard time getting to the patient. Edit to add: http://www.westkentuckystar.com/

    Catalog shows 2010 Camaros to have 4 wire HO2S with either a square or tri-oval connector.\ Looks like EGR style connector....

    ^ Liberals are many times AGAINST liberty. Try talking gun or free speech rights with 'em. So, be careful how those stupid funny people are labeled.

    The man with CO detectors on bicycles isn't gonna jump on a safety bandwagon?
  13. Lightning = the storm kind

    So, right now (8:50 cst) from my location W of Paducah KY, I can look across the street and on the horizon watch the clouds light up with lightning. It's not very bright, but noticeable without any other lights around. I was guessing there was a storm about 40 or 50 miles away..... NOPE. I watched jet fly over heading almost directly toward the most dense lightning. Flightaware showed where it was headed, and lightningmaps.org showed me the strikes. They are south of Nashville, between I65 and Fayetteville. That's about 160 miles. That's my WOW for the day...
