That was a narrow shave. They can celebrate a new birthday now every year.

Holy cow. Crazy the lady was just thinking about getting up and sitting at the table. Wow.

I just bought my son a new Porter Cable buffer. Think it will work?

Was at a campground in Colorado a number of years ago when high winds were forecast. One part of the campground had very large spruce trees and the campers in that area were told to move to another area. And fortunately so. Numerous trees were blown down where RVs had been an hour before. Only casualty was a brand new Ram dually parked near the restaurant. Tree crushed the entire cab level with the bed. Luckily the owners were in the restaurant at the time.

Several years ago we were at a CG in PA and set up at the edge of a tall forest. A family with several small girls pitched their tent in the spot next to us. Rain was forecast and they decided to pack up. The next morning we saw a huge branch had crashed down on their exact tent spot. It would have done serious damage. We couldn't believe how lucky they were...

I wonder if the truck frame may be bent too.
