So I get everything back together and got the car down off the lifts and found a puddle of hydraulic fluid from those el-cheapo quik-disconnect hose fittings on the lift. So I decided to push the car outside and then spread the Speedy Dry to clean things up.
I hand-pushed the car out onto the driveway when all of a sudden I hear this huge THUD!
I look at my next-door neighbor's house and his 70' tall Willow in the back yard had broken in half in the high winds today and had fallen right where he parks his enclosed trailer with his two racing motorcycles in it. I run over there, setting a land-speed record in the process, and there is no trailer there and no cars in the driveway. Turns out he is at the track for the weekend with his bikes and his wife was visiting her Dad in a neighboring town. Talk about luck. If the trailer had been there it, and the bikes, would have been crushed.
Gonna be a busy morning with the roar of chainsaws cutting that mother up.
