    No I dont. As I exited after voting, the paramedics still had her in the ground working on her. I just had to keep walking because there were 100's of people in that area alone. The line coming in the building and the line wrapping around the building. Moral of the story is, don't try to...

    I voted there this morning. Got there at 9am stood in the rain for the first hour and a half. Then cold wind for the next 2 hours. Got back to my car at 12:35. A lady in her 70's about 5 people ahead of me stood in that same line when we literally made it the the entrance doors, she...

    Man, this scares the hell out of me. My 50 foot sycamore sits about 30 feet north of my house. Luckily yesterday, limbs came straight down and all missed the house. I know there are many more broken limbs still up there resting on others, this may throw them all onto my house. This...

    Anyone else out there getting hammered by this right now? My yard and neighborhood is all fully mature trees and limbs are snapping left and right. Sounds like gun shots outside. I'm going to be lucky if I can escape this without something big falling on my roof. This sucks.

    Nah. I never thought about it. I always just think it's cool when I hear of someone coming up when I did. Means we were at OSU at the same time. Back in the days when you had to read the O'Colly to see if your name got picked in lottery to be able to buy bball tickets.
