Yeah, the clouds DO look different. They're closer. In other words, there ain't much between you and the lightening. (making "eek" face)Tony said:Excellent shots copperpoppy. The monsoons storm clouds look different at a higher altitude. Nice to see you finally got your Pilot dirty. Now it's time to wash her.
Are you supposed to be getting new plates or are you keeping the old ones from a trade-in? I have my Accord's plate thinking I was going to re-use it and they sent me new ones. I was thinking of getting personalized plates ... something like "I HTML." Not sure if I am going to do it though. Strikes me as a bit pretentous. What do you think?Tony said:Yes copperpoppy, the cardboard temp. plates are fading away fast. I hope I get the permanent plates soon.
(laughing) You would be surprised at how many people do NOT unplug their computers during the storms. They think just turning it off will somehow help. Or they say they have a powerstrip as if that thing with 1 jewel is going to do the trick.(G) Its a different world up here and one with lots of lightening.Watch out for the lightning, copper conducts electricity.
Didn't Casa Grande get pummelled yesterday?You haven't had a chance to install the splash guards? I guess you must be getting more rain than we are. Last night a storm hit but it wasn't bad on our side of town.
Well, I don't mind telling you, I was getting a bit worried. I think Tony was too. I nearly called but, thought better of it. Figured I'd wait before we called the State Police. "Don't know his name or where he works but hey, he drives a Sandstone Metallic 2003 Honda Pilot with the following accessories..."Threadhead said:That's Arizona for ya. ... I'll be heading up to Sedona on Friday for a delivery. Looks like good weather for the day and should be a nice drive for the Pilot. Really looking forward to it.
Check it out. I got them on. Wasn't hard at all! I'm going to post the pictures of my installation later on tonight (provided it doesn't storm). If a woman with long nails can do this, ANYONE can do it!Tony said:I hope you get those guards in place. They would help with all the rainy weather we've been having.
Don't send out the posse quite yet!copperpoppy said:Well, I don't mind telling you, I was getting a bit worried. I think Tony was too. I nearly called but, thought better of it.

I own an embroidery and screen printing company. We do a couple of resorts up in Sedona.Glad business is going well, and you're right that drive to Sedona should be fabulous. Haven't been there with my Pilot yet. Operative word is "yet." What kind of work do you do, if you don't mind my asking? [/B]
Thankyouverykindly. I just posted full instructions on how to do it. Felt kinda stupid sitting out in the driveway like that but, ya never know who might actually need this information, right?Tony said:There you go copperpoppy. You did it!
I knew you could.
Could you just imagine trying to tell the police this? I mean, for real? They'd get a good giggle out of that one. Sort of like when I worked for the ISP here and one of our customers actually phoned the police because her computer "performed an illegal operation."Threadhead said:Don't send out the posse quite yet!
Your mother-in-law is one very lucky lady to have such a sweet son-in-law to do that for her.I'm still not done with the house, the counter tops won't be in for a week or two, so I have a short reprieve.
OHHHHHHHHH COOLEST!! Sedona is so beautiful. I want to get some photos of the Arizona Pilots against that backdrop. Whachathink?I own an embroidery and screen printing company. We do a couple of resorts up in Sedona.
Well, plans have changed. I'm not going to take the Pilot, taking the truck instead. Just couldn't bear to load my new baby up with a hundred pounds of dirty boxes. Plus, I don't want to add the miles, expecially after just haveing the the w-pump and t-belt replaced. A few more local miles would make me feel better before a long trip.copperpoppy said:OHHHHHHHHH COOLEST!! Sedona is so beautiful.

(screaming) DIRTY BOXES? Ohhhhhhhhh no. Glad you're taking the truck.Threadhead said:Well, plans have changed. I'm not going to take the Pilot, taking the truck instead. Just couldn't bear to load my new baby up with a hundred pounds of dirty boxes.
Thank you. I had my doubts. But, I figured if I messed it up, I could always just throw everything into the back and drive to the dealer's. It didn't occur to me that I was DRILLING A PERMANENT HOLE THOUGH MY BUMPER until afterwards. Then ... I panicked.chiquita said:I can't even begin to tell you how impressed I am with your installation of the splash guards!!! Very professional looking :4: :4:
You should have tried it. It was really a lot of fun. I want to do that air deflector thing but, I might have it done. Not sure. If its fun, I will...As for me, I have an appointment at the dealer tomorrow to have my backordered ones installed. Just goes to show you what a chicken I am.
