    Apparently property loss was the extent of it, with no serious injury to any rally attendees.

    We got off easy. My driveway looks like a mini grand canyon but we live to play another day.

    This was an absolutely bewitching day in southern Minnesota.

    When they built the basement, I had two sump wells put in. One for the regular sump pump and one for the water driven one that takes over if the level gets up to a set mark.
    My other bike is a BMW.
