    It's blowing like hell here in Tigard. I'm surprised the power is still on. Gonna' be some downed trees in the Metro Area today!

    Power went out at Fisherman's while I was there about a half hour ago. I'm working at the Port of Vancouver now and it's real stormy here too.

    Is it like this in Salem also? Have to head there, should be fun with all the panicky people on I-5 losing their minds.

    Just took a gust here at the coast that was an easy 70-80 mph, fun stuff. The powers still on Thanks PP&L. I'm Off today, but the guys I work with must be hating it up on the poles and in the bucket trucks.

    Well S#!+. I went to 24hr Fitness at Murray & Scholls a little bit ago. Haven't been to the gym in a week. I haven't even started my first set, and the power goes out. 10 minutes later they're walking around telling everyone to vacate- liability issues with the power out. Bah humbug!

    Lacey WA this is the view from my gal's bedroom window.. the top of my neighbor's Alaskan cedar snapped off and barely missed taking out my big truck's windshield.. it did rip several holes in the aluminum top that I will have to repair but on the plus side I am going to make a Roman Imperial seat out of the base of that piece, and the rest will be good for other projects

    That's a silver tarp on the top I added to shed the rain off

    The chair will be a solid version sort of like this

    Still a little breezy here in Hillsburitto, but nothing like it was this morning. Blew my trash bin and yard debris buckets over, but I didn't have any yard debris and the trash was all bagged up and stayed put so I'm just leaving them down until this all blows over. I don't want to have to turn them upright just to have them blow over again.
