Storms and the damage they bring
I love to build Legos, my favorite right now is Chima. I also like to challenge myself by memorizing the Safety Data Sheets at Cobb EMC.
It really bothers me when squirrels get into transformers and cause power outages. I also don’t understand how anyone could dislike Tweety Bird.
