I hate wind more than anything, that's the worst IMO when it's blowing you around lane to lane.  >:(

Safe travels bro, good call on the seeking shelter, hope you have a great ride home from here out!  :motonoises:

Wow! And my trip home was pretty tame except for fuel consumption numbers.   >:(

Glad you made it through that big blow.   :-\

You know if you would ride one of those motorcycle your fuel consumption would be better  :)

Yep.  But it wasn't MY idea to trailer.  I didn't even own a truck or a trailer.  Had no intention of trailering.  But mama didn't want me to ride up alone.   :truce:

But now she's happy.

Glad someone is happy, Jami is getting tired of these eleven and twelve hours days. One more and we be home tomorrow.  ;D

I really like running down I-90, everybody is 80+ except for a few trucks. Man the freeways are gonna be tough when I get back to Oregon!

Take two margaritas and call me in the morning.   :great:
Be safe you two.  I'm sure she's more than ready to be home.

 Yeah know what the extreme wind and gusts can be like. Only time I took cover and it was in a remote area so had to wait for a 'ranch road' exit on I-84 and took cover in the underpass in UT before entering ID.

You are lucky Gumby! There was a confirmed tornado during last Friday's storm. Have a look at this...

http://www.ketv.com/article/couple-arrives-home-two-days-after-tornado-i-cant-deny-anymore-that-its-not-real/10040489

Lost electric power here at my house for about four hours and had a lot of cleanup to do Saturday morning. I've got some photos on my phone of cars smashed by fallen trees just a few blocks from my house. Took them on my morning walk. I'll get them uploaded and post them.

Again, I'm so glad that you were able to find refuge and are safe n sound. (Well, OK, safe)   ;D

Edit; Got the photos ready to post. See below.







This was a few blocks from my house. There was another little red car that was smashed like this one, but not nearly as bad.

Glad you made it out of here OK.

+1...  :great:

Looks like next year's Nat is about the same distance from us again in the PNW, 2k+ one way... Maybe in 2019 it will come back to the West coast.  :??:

You are lucky Gumby!
Indeed we are Jerry.

The more I see what happened around us and think about trying to get around it, getting warned multiple times nonetheless, I feel blessed very blessed.
