https://www.radioworld.com/news-and-business/headlines/wind-storm-knocks-down-two-radio-towers-serving-west-virginia-am  FWR'ed by Boomer of WAG 690AM. Gee... And I thought that my AM1620 took a hit, where the 9ft copper pipe was ripped off the mounts. BTW, that Array of 580AM WCHS over looks the cities of Dunbar, South Charleston, and Institute, WV. What's weird is that they didn't mention this on their website, but mentioned being off-air, when I tuned-in to the Cross lanes 104.5FM translator, which came back on 1st. Yep... It's a mess down here, but could have been a lot worst, since this storm happened about two weeks before the foliage came back on the trees. About mid-April is when trees have the leaves back here. So, dodged a bullet there.
I was asked, yet another weird question, of how I would like to be buried, when I finally bite the big one. The answer was actually pretty easy. Face-down, like a certain historical figure in the late 1980's, (I will not mention who, but some of you will get it, and that's enough.) Why??? It would be a burial that will satisfy everyone: (1) My enemies will say that it will show me where to go. (2) On the same point, I can have my enemies kiss my butt. (3) It will temporarily give someone a place to park a bicycle. See??? A WIN / WIN for everyone.
