Now for the "rest of the story" ...

I left work at 5:30 PM on September 27. It was a dark and rainy evening with lightning dancing across the sky. I couldn't drive more than
40-45 mph because the windshield wipers couldn't clear the water from the glass. I turned the radio on and made the best of it....

My wife told me that about 3:45, she heard a terriffic BOOM and at 4:30 she saw the smoke billowing from the shop. The firemen
arrived about 15-20 minutes later.

In the pouring rain, all they could do was point their hoses to the surrounding areas to keep the fire from spreading. Lightning was still crashing all around and several times the brave firemaen had to run for cover.

I got home about 6:15. The picture I sent was the end result. The shop was burned to the ground. As for the truck, the frame, suspension, and every body panel is warped, dented, and twisted.

Again thank you,
