    Sorry to hear about the damage around you. Glad it wasn't worse.

    That's about like tornados and hurricanes. The next days are usually beautiful clear skies since the moisture in the sky has been wrung out and the rest moved on.

    Even "stick shift" might be too vague, since most automatics have a stick shifter in the console.

    But not @Clipdat - not only can Drew hooligan a stickshift car, he's the anti-millennial millennial and can unload a bucket of hammers on a pack of quintessential skinny pantser crybabies as fast as or faster than the most practiced curmudgeon. I've seen it a hundred times.
