DEVASTATING picture of storm damage in Sweden

Read this text before you open the picture...

With all the news on TV lately about the extreme weather conditions
affecting the East Coast of the US, the mud slides in the Middle East
and South America, the flood that made it's mark on Southern England,
along with the dire predictions made by such films as The Day After
Tomorrow, we shouldn't forget that Sweden has its share of devastating
weather too.


I've attached a photo illustrating the damage caused to my home from a
storm that passed through the south of Sweden last week. It really
makes you cherish what you have, and reminds us not to take things for
granted!

Are you smokin that stogie or is it smokin you?

For fook's sake, I hope everyone was alright! Looks pretty nasty.

I "almost" bought from a sponsor, but then BDA told me that I/it didn't matter.

That happened to my family when I was about 8 years old. Some things stay with you as long as you live. God bless.

Hopefully the President will authorize low-interest loans to help you through this tough time. Hang in there, buddy!

I think Figment opened up the cabinet with the expensive stuff in it again.

Re: DEVASTATING picture of storm damage in Sweden

Damn, you can stay at my place for as long as you like. Bring that hot wife of yours too.

She can bunk w/ me. Just until you can get back on your feet, you understand.

Be fast or be last.
