    Its amazing how events change by word of mouth. When I first heard about this, my wife was on the phone with her mother, and my MIL was saying that a tornado collapsed part of the Cowboy's stadium.

    The initial reporting was terrible. It was initially reported to be a tornado and that 58 were injured. The place was filled with media members covering the practice, so you would think the reporting would be more accurate.

    does that tell you anything about media? especially on the internet. I don't believe much of anything unless it is on video.

    I set up a really nice tarp structure over our boat one year, this was a pretty heavy duty unit, 2 inch galvanized pipe and open on both ends. We poured 5 gallon buckets with cement and set the bases in the cement, then fastened the 10 poles to the bases with aircraft bolts. Set out cables all around it with screw-in ground connectors. It was real nice, until we got one of those little afternoon microburst storms here in Florida. The wind took my nice $700 structure and turned it into a junk pile in about 2 minutes. Not a scratch on the boat thank God, but the rest of it was twisted up real pretty like a big metal pretzel.
    Bolts held though, the base poles are still sitting in the buried buckets to this day...
