    Sitting here at home waiting out Hurricane Bill. Next door neighbour has a tree close to my drive way. It keeps bending over more and more every hour and it is pouring rain. Can't move the Taco on the street, they are suppose to remain clear for Emerg trucks. Here's hoping the tree has long roots:mad:

    I hope you don't end up with a flattened taco! We're getting nice waves here from Bill, surfers paradise today.

    Nice. I was out looking at the waves earlier and one came up onto the road and took out 6 people standing there. They were quick to move on. The police came shortly there after and closed the road. We are now getting power outages in the city. Thanks, can't be having a flat Taco

    I've seen video of a taco take a direct hit from a meteor and come out unscathed, a tree would be no match for your truck. Tree is probably trying to move away from the truck, it's scared.

    Appears Bill has passed through heading for Cape Breton then onto Newfoundland. Power did not go out my end of town but 23,000 do not have power and no reported casualities. Tree did not fall on the TACO. My ship HMCS Toronto was sent down to Biloxi MISS. to help after Katrina. That was a mess. Nothing major here just a lot of wind and rain so we were lucky. The good thing is the Taco looks mighty clean. I guess that hard rain dobied her up right some nice. Thanks all:):cheers:

    A couple scratches on front bumper when garage door fell on it. Crease in the back bumper where my truck got into a fight with a pole.
    I needed Bill to land in S. Fl... We need work

    We are expecting it to hit here in Newfoundland by tonight or tomorrow. So far just a bit of rain and no wind. It should be pretty interesting.

    Rgr I think it will be downgraded to a tropical storm just the same the wind and rain will be bad. Secure the hatches she may be rough.
