Molly.... you're labeling Scott (tacoblanca) as Ben (extremepaint)



Just an FYI



PS:

I ran very fast, and very far, when i saw the camera coming my direction. In fact, i wasn't even there at all... it was all a figment of your imagination

And I would've been there if I wasn't working (not sure how long I will be doing this job with more BS) and had my 1" bodylift ordered.

Good pics as always!

I see you got a couple of the sky. Did that storm hit hard down there? I tried calling you, Molly, to give you a heads up on that. Up where I live we got pounded hard for about 30-45 minutes and it was tracking towards Peterson.

We had a tornado and hail warning. We had to shut up all the bays for about an hour and just stay inside. It never hailed or rained uber hard for that mater but it did rain for about an hour.

Oh and sorry, my cell has been retarted ever since I dropped it at Doug's house a few nights ago. it just turens itself off all the time now. GRRR

Cool pics Molly!

And getting a lesson on inner tie rod replacement from Brian is an understatment. He swapped that thing in about 20 minutes, no joke! Thanks Brian.

Great event.

No, no tornadoes that day. There was a funnel sighting by law enforcement up on Ute Pass, but no tornadoes.
