I think those cranes might be a little too short to reach the roof.

A prominent local message board participant warns me that only naive sheeple believe the storm caused the damage.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

Some cranes are showers, others are growers.

It is not the size of the crane but how you use it. Or something like that.
By using the El Dorado Atmospheric and Oceanic temperatures thermal map. I caculated the contrary direction where the polar jet stream is going and it didn't look pretty.

That's what the small cranes always say...

With my crane, it's like a hotdog in a hallway:

Every building I have been with has said that my crane was the biggest they have ever seen and that it did the job better than any other crane so I got that going for me.

Really? Because I saw one of your buildings posted on "PostYourExCrane.com" and the photo told a different story.

Seems weird not seeing a cloud of smoke on the horizon.
