    Wind

    Pic of bent flag pole taken this morning at a school outside Boulder that I've done various remodel jobs for over the years. This ain't no cheesy pole either, 2 1/2 in heavy gauge pipe that has withstood many windstorms till last night.

    Thanks tho, but I got one. Still solid and not going to fall so they want to leave it up for a bit to see if a parent will pony up to get a new one. Need to make sure I'm there that day so I can dispose of properly. ;]
