Got caught on 75 north once in a hail storm... On a ZRX1200. SUCKS!

You can see the traffic on the other side stopped in the lanes waiting for the craziness to stop. The first time in my life I've seen traffic stop in the lanes during a storm. I've seen cars pull over. Must be a Texas thing.

Picked up my bumpers. I need to figure out how to make it work with a tilting hood.

Looks like something out of an armageddon/road warrior movie. I wouldn't want to be infront of you on the road.

People here including the transport truck pull over for serious hail.

No choice. It's like ball bearings under your tires.

Last two hail storms I drove into had 1.5 inch hail. I slid into a turn off side ways like I was drifting. I was just happy to get the hell off the road.

In my Trans am, I even pull over in heavy rain. Wide 50 series tires hydroplane real bad.

I couldn't see 10 feet. There was now way I was going to drive in that mess. That's why I pulled over in front of that semi. I was worried about someone running into the back of me.

Didn't borrow them. They were never installed. Not quite sure why the government does what they do but I scored a pair of killer bumpers for a fraction of what they paid or what it would cost me to have built.

I might have a line on some AGM batteries. They are 12 volt, 86 Ahr each and 2-3 years old. How many should I pick up for house batteries? There might be between 4 and 6 available. They are similar to this.

DR. MO (DRMO- Defense Reutilization Management Office, now DLA Disposition Services) special. They're even used to transfer excess equipment between units.
