    I'd like to start this thread by saying: Hello, my name is Andy and I'm a Talkbass addict. Anywhoo... I haven't been around lately. Tuesday morning, around 7AM, Memphis was hit by the biggest storm in at least 10 years, probably more. I've never seen anything like it. A captain on a riverboat on the Mississippi measured a straightline wind gust of 96mph. Winds were incredibly strong, and the whole city has been devastated. Trees are down everywhere, and power has been out for 220k people. One of my friends parks his cars next to each other in his backyard... woke up the next morning to find them both totalled by an oak tree. I just got my power back at 2:45 last night. Its been nuts here. Not even sure if this made the news in other parts of the country, I've been sans TV for quite some time. That said... its good to be back. And having power for my amp is nice, I was getting tired of playing unplugged. :bassist:
