I'm going to post this not because I'm boo hooing but I have made some friends here.
A few of us met at the Madison swap and also a few at the Minnesota swap, along with other deals. So I feel I do have some "Cyber and Real" friends here in this forum.
1st...We are all fine!
I live in Augusta, WI and we were hit by 2 tornado's on Sunday afternoon. All I sustained was simple property damage. We lost 2 vehicles and a shed....oh I guess we lost a 70 ft pine also. The pine is what took out the 2 cars. The wind took out the shed. My convertible and bikes were all safe and sound in the garage .
I am going to post a link to NBC, they only talk about Merrill WI but some of the footage is from Augusta because at 41 seconds you see my gray Caravan and my red Jetta and at 42 seconds or so thats my son walking across the street.
The cars and shed can be replaced and I'm not going to miss that pine sap dripping tree.
The local news came out and did a full story from my yard and put my ugly mug on TV. NBC got the footage for the national story from our local news in Eau Claire.
So I got a neat story and 14 seconds of fame.
And my wife gets to shop for a new/used minivan. I think we are moving up to a Chrysler Town and Country Touring this time. I'm not sure I will replace the Jetta but who knows.
Thanks for letting me share,
