If you had been with us at CroMag, you would know how really funny that is.


What is it with you and loose wires, anyway?

Figured I post here as most of guys have sent me a PM. Family and I are fine. We lost power for a couple of days but I pulled a few strings with the power company and they restored my neighborhood. Been working 12 to 14 hr days since Monday as the damage is extensive. We have just declared a State of Emergency which will open up some avenues to get restorations done quicker. In my 30 years of service, I have never seen as such devastation and as wide spread as what I have seen in the past few days. I am a lot better off than most people.

2 biggest things are power and Fuel.

Thanks to every one for the prayers and well wishes, and see you in the spring rally

Glad to see you post here, Mike! Was wondering how you and yours have been. Keep your chin up, your neighbors will need you. Great that you were able to get power back.

Good to hear you are ok, you and your family were in my thoughts after the storm.

Thanks to everyone. I has been a very trying times up here. Took a tour of the beach area today with our vice president.

Whole towns and neighborhoods just gone. 2ft of sand 1 mile away from the beach, boats and houses in the middle of highways, it was almost to much to bare today. It is going to take months to return what we can back to normal, what we can't, re will have to re-evaluate.

Here is a video a friend of mine turn me onto
