Maui Fun

Sorry, this is so way late in coming out with the video, of Maui.
All the boys are having a great time.
Build stuff in the sand, not sure which ones are having more fun, the little boys or the big boys. LOL

The weather was great, in the 70s most of the time we're there.
It was sad to come home to cold Oregon.

When The Winds Come

Had a little wind the other night.
Started out with thunder rolling for about 10 minutes
then the rain started then the wind begin to blow.
By 5:00PM the power wires were pulled down by a fir tree near Minthorne road.
Both wires broken in two.
Lots of other trees came down, around the valley. Some house got trees down on them, as will.
When I called PPL, to get the lines fixed, said that there was 33, 000 homes with out power, by 6:00PM.
The power was out Sunday night and did not get fixed till 1:00AM Tuesday.

This poor guy's pick up is just not the same.
