    It was windy here too, we had a 32mph breeze with gusts in the high 40s and low 50s. I managed to only lose one shingle. I drove past an apartment building while I was leaving work that had the all the shingles along the south side standing on end, I'm guessing they will be getting a new roof soon.

    Re: Windy today!

    wind was a contributing factor. Let's see what other contributing factors would cause a double stack freight train to derail all on one side of a trestle in very high winds.

    Thinking.

    Pondering.

    Evaluating.

    Nope, nothing.

    Maybe the NM cops will fill us in later.
