Phil from RRR called me today and wanted me to pass this along:

Missouri was hit by an ice storm last Friday. Southwestern (Springfield area) Missouri was hit especially hard. They've been without power and phones since then.

Phil got phones back today, but they're still without power. Therefore the web site is down (it was up, but may yo-yo for a little while before everything gets settled.). So if anyone has been trying to reach him by phone or by internet be patient & hopefully everything will be normal soon. Right now it's a BIG mess!

I'm in the Northeastern part (Hannibal, MO) and we got the ice & a little bit of snow. Fortunately we never lost power or phones or any of our own trees. Unfortunately everything in the parking lots, yards, drive-ways, etc. are sheets of ice. It looks like glass. The roads are good to travel on though. But my driveway isn't. I fell last last night trying to make it out to my shed to warm it up for me & my 5 yr. old. We were going to race cars while mommy went to a meeting. Instead we stayed inside and watched Power Rangers.

AWESOME.....I'm glad to hear that Phil and RRR are ok...

I emailed Phil this afternoon to ask about the site being down......because I wanted to check out thier wheels one more time before ordering......

I live about 70 miles north of Houston,TX. and I tell ya, the past two days have been nothing but solid sleet and ice....VERY unusual for this area.

DOH! Should have thought about that. They've had some bad weather out that way, even reached as far down as Texas, at least as far as San Antonio. Ice out the wazoo. :freak: rr

The problem with all this ice is finding a store with electricity so you can buy some ta-kill-ya to make the margaritas.

since you dont have power you could get a blender and have snow cones
ummmm, need I say, a blender would require ice, an on/off button and AN OUTLET.
sorry, I had to say it, but everyone was thinking it.

I am in Boonville and we received about 4-6" sleet which slighty thawed and then froze hard. Real hard and very hard to travel even by foot. We are now looking to get the snow part again for Sunday morning. I would rather be stuck in snow than stuck on top of a big pile of ice. I have some of the 3R winged sprint car vaccumn bodies from wert-wert and always want to buy more of everything. I would bet that it slows them down a little but won't stop them. David- by the way, no salt or lime for me.

I live in Missouri and I think a lot of other people on this site are after reading all the posts on this subject. I am excited about 3R's purchase of the nurora line. can't wait to see what is next.
