    I saw about 4 trees or big limbs pushed out of the road on my way home Wednesday. That sure was a windstorm. One of my professors had a tree fall on his car, but it didn't do much damage. Must not have been a big tree.

    That wind kept me awake almost all night. I have a motion activated flood light outside my bedroom window and the tree branches waving in the wind kept tripping it all night. Plus the wind was really loud too!

    Nah, but it got worst yesterday. VN was loading logs in a 30yd dumpster with the T190, a piece rolled off the back of the bucket and he ended up with a lap full of glass. Door glass gone:cry:

    That's scary. When I worked at a company a few years back I started using a Bobcat to load things into a dumpster like I was told. Well, apparently someone thought they latched the bucket on and it looked like it was but it was broken. So as I lift the bucket it swings back and shatters the glass door and falls to the ground. It scared the sh*t out of me. I sat there in shock with glass all over me for like five minutes. Just thought I'd share.
