    Our neighborhood didn't sustain that much damage, but there was a ton of trees down and the backside of the neighborhood looks like a war zone straight out of vietnam... and for some reason my wife wants me to call her "charlie" when we drive through there. :dunno: :hsugh:

    The people that have houses backed up to the golf course sustained some serious tree damage. big ass pine trees falling on houses and cars aren't fun. :hs:

    ANYHOOO... here's the gas station down the street from us that took a beating, and a couple of pics from a massive tree that was down. The rest of the trees look similar, so I figured I wouldn't have to take too many pics. :o

    what, 1 hurricane that did any serious damage in the last 25 years? :o

    I'll take that over earthquakes all day, everyday. Because at least w/ hurricanes, I can GTFO before it hits. :wiggle:

    I never understood this. People are scared of earthquakes when they live in an area that has fucking TORNADOS and Hurricanes. :nuts:

    Earthquakes are chill as fuck. :mamoru:

    The "OUT OF SERVICE" sign on the gas pump makes me laugh.

    Good to see you made it out ok. I'll post some pictures that I have tomorrow. No major damage since I'm on the west side, but I spent all day at my parents in Spring cleaning up their yard today.
