    Rumor has it that my problem neighbors are FINALLY talking about moving. I'll believe it when I see the moving van pull away. They are know pathological liars.

    Wish I could say the same...I was 61 when I destroyed my mower blade on the metal stake. And, I DO own a string trimmer. (the metal stake was in the ground against the side of a building where I was mowing and I was too lazy to use the string trimmer to trim along the edge of the building, so I got a little too close with the lawn mower. Ugh).

    My BiL in Paoli had a massive oak branch hit his house in Paoli, PA, this week. It didn't spear, but did crush his eave.

    Last night, in the DC area, we had a solid storm, but not too bad. Nothing major came down. (There's this dead branch, probably 50' up, about 6" in diameter. Fortunately, it's between houses...)

    I was living in Cincinnati, OH at the time. Lost power for a couple hours which was pretty good. I know people who were without power for a week when Ike came through.

    Ahhh, so likely false rumors. That is kinda disappointing.

    6 foot tall fence with bushes that go above that.

    I'm just down the road from Paoli; all sorts of mess; we lost power for 2 days, got it back for a few hours, then splat again. PECO's outage map web site is awful, plenty of false-alarm "you're fixed" premature texting going on...

    I talked Mrs. Turk to get the clippers out cleaning up the mess around my ears a bit. I wanna decide what kind of mullet to rock; I am torn between Joshua Tree-era Bono or NHL scoring champ Penguins-era Jaromir Jagr? Any one else I should consider?

    At first, I thought I had opened the Firearm thread when I read this post.
