We had a major wind and rain storm over night. Winds clocked at gusts up to 121 MPH at Snoqualmie pass. I90 freeway.

At Deception Pass that goes over the water to the island of Oak Harbor, a USPS truck was blown over onto the railing and they had to wait a few hours as crews cleared downed trees before they could right the truck. No damage or USPS mail lost, but during the constant 60 to 65 mph windows, the truck looked like it could blow over even though the bridge had upright beams that would keep it from going.

I enjoyed this video, yes it is a lowrider, but glad to see old GM iron put back on the road and restored. 

 

 

Neat wood working/Aviation video.

A little late. But I got to post a tribute to the late Tommy Lasorda. 

From a Montreal point of view. He pitched for the Dodger's farm team, the Montreal Royals. (Brooklyn that is)

I saw this game live on TV. It was an epic game. Extra innings into the wee hours of the night. 19 or 20 some odd innings.  

 

And of course, the run in with the Philly Phanatic is just soooo...much more...

 

RIP Tommy

@A Horse With No Name I started to follow this guy. Wife and I want to have him build us a custom square table for the kitchen that will have 3 chairs per side, total of 12 chairs. His work is amazing.

Yeah it is. 

The live edge table I built. I am going to put simple modern steel chairs with it, and a simple modern light fixture. My next project is building a modern style table for behind the sofa. the shakerish table is going to be a desk upstairs. 

No description available.

Not a very clean photo, Christmas dishes on the table....sorry. You can't really see it but solid piece of Ash, with a lot of natural figure.

RE the ‘62 Pontiac: I believe the 4-spd would be a RPO by that year- it came out in ‘60. Car may have well been ordered, but 4-cog should be RPO.
8-lugs came out for late ‘60, these look to have ‘63-64 center caps / trim rings.

Yeah, they were added later, and are incorrect for '62. It came stock with hubcaps, which they still have with the car.

You're funny!  Is the top photo Victoria Falls?  As for the lower photo, that could be the Dolomites in Italy, but also Austria, Switzerland, or Bavaria.  If it's the Dolomites, I have driven the Great Dolomite Road twice and it is incredible!
