    Wicked wicked winds last night, lotsa jetskiers took the day off of work and are out there jumpin' the swells. Wish I was out there...some big surf, they're catching some big air.

    Just north of you, Gixxer. I was out riding in early afternoon when it was 35mph or so. When it was really kicking, I was home and about 10' of siding came off the house, but we got it and it's awaiting my hammer skillz. (Break it down... oh... oh... oh oh.) We were also without cable for a few hours and the lights flickered once. Not bad.

    Many others in our town are out, but we're lucky to have all in-ground cabling in our neighborhood.

    80 mph winds cut thru here yesterday, still 300,000 without power. Work cancelled, all schools are down today & tomorrow. Lost power myself yesterday, back on this AM.

    But the Ryder Cup golf tourney is still on for tomorrow @Valhalla.......

    70 mph gusts here. Lots of tree limbs down and around 300,000 were without power. Most of the power has been restored now, but not all of it. It was pretty strong for just a remnant of a storm.

    everyone is getting slammed in some way by Ike... just drive down the road and you will see it, at least in the South eastern states you will.

    Just a ton of rain and the wind kicked up a little for an hour or so. No power outages here.
