    I talked to Jim and Paul yesterday during the show as they were learning about it. I would have been crapping my pants. Paul was cool as a cucumber saying this ain't going to slow us we will fix it fast.

    :(

    Glad everyone is okay, but they were probably cold and/or scared for a while. And really sorry if anyone had anything going to finish at the time, or any other collateral damage.

    Glad everyone is ok!

    I was waiting to disclose this, but I had a PS build in the works that was destroyed when the roof bit the dust. Just got the news. The record of the order and payment were also lost, so they're just going to have to take my word for it. That's what insurance is for.

    ;)

    Sounds like a lot of people couldn't get in to work from the snow so no one was in that area. Now I just hope my guitar wasn't in that area.

    I anxiously await the special 'Blizzard' run of guitars that were damaged and then salvaged and refinished in a special never-to-be-repeated 'whiteout' colour, at a modest premium over their standard prices. :D

    Don't fix the cosmetic damage. Just fix the working parts and sell them as the LE Avalanche.
