    So a couple of hours ago we had some 60 MPH+ straightline winds blow through my neighborhood. I haven't checked to make sure I've got all my shingles but my neighbor had a 10 year old crabapple tree come out roots and all.

    Tomorrow I think I'll head over and offer to help him do a little cutting. And grab myself a couple of armloads of wood.

    Anybody have any personal experience with crab apple?

    Isn't crabapple just another variety of Apple?

    Hey dude. I seen that line of storms that came thru your area a few hours ago. Nothing but black skies to our South.

    We had the bad winds last week. Trees down everywhere and all you have to do is offer to cut up the oak trees and take them away.

    Nothing better than free wood.
    Congrats on the score Dude, hope all your shingles are still intact.
    Checked out the video you posted, damn that was crazy!
    Guess I should consider myself lucky we usually don't get hail in Jersey, but hurricane season has started...
