    I hate strong winds. Last August I woke up to some freak wind storm that blew 4 sheets of tin off my shed roof, blew 3-4 trees over about 200 feet away from me, and overturned a portable carport thingy held down by a chain and 4 concrete cinder blocks. Wind was so noisy it was like I was directly next to a huge waterfall. I thought it was the end of the world for a while. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    It's been windy here, too. My 77 Trans Am is still sitting at the guys house I bought it from since he can't find the keys. A tree fell over in the ice storm and is sitting there and the wind blew a branch off and hit the hood and windshield. Dented the hood and cracked the windshield. Dammit, two more things to fix.....
