    yeah they are getting hit hard.
    I should be happy for the boring weather we have so far this year. we had the most tornadoes of all the states last year. I never seen one either, but now I know where to look, so who knows?
    Do you do ham radio, or use another form of reporting there?

    I don't have a radio operator's license, but I am a volunteer fire fighter, so I have my department radio (it's nice to not have to call 911 when you are 911 ;)), and I have the phone number for the NWS office here in Tallahassee to directly call in reports.

    It was pretty busy up there last year. ;) Alabama set a new one day record, 41 separate confirmed touchdowns on 4/15.

    Um no, i had some dirt clogging the radiator. got er fixed now lol, it was making some funny noises when it maxed out at 265 degrees ol. also at 250,000 miles I added some oil and forgot to put on the oil cap. well it started making strange clicking sounds. Opened the hood and there was oil everywhere, except in the motor! well, topped it off and got the cap on, no issues since, guess I got lucky eh? tough little truck for sure!:rolleyes:

    Is that an aurora borealis , or does the sky always look like that in your area ?

    Yes Aurora, and no, not always, around ten times this year I have seen it, one of the perks of living up north! :)

    My old ranger is in semi retirement now, still used for pulling and hauling things on rare occasions. It has served me well, but it just uses too much fuel, and needs too many repairs for full time use.
