Flames engulfed a seven-story bourbon warehouse Monday, sending alcohol-fueled flames more than 100 feet in the air.
The Jim Beam warehouse collapsed about two hours after the fire was reported at 3 p.m. and continued burning. The company said the metal-and-wood structure held about 19,000 barrels of bourbon, or less than 2 percent of its bourbon inventory.
Weasel - out of curiousity - how much do you pay for your son's car insurance? The six month premium (I can't buy for longer than six months) on my 20 year old stepdaughter's 2002 Dodge Stratus is $1,250. That's a Houston/Austin rate based on a spotless driving record.
BShaef I pay around 1800 a year for a Toyota Camry 1986. Then I moved him to Liability only on a 1994 Civic and the price dropped to 1200.
This is with the Drivers Ed and Honor Student discount. He is also insured to drive all of the other cars in the family which includes a Mini-Van and my Acura which is a lot more car than any kid should drive.
Basically these kids get screwed on insurance but at the same time they do have the most wrecks so byt he law of averages it is fair.
Even though it's not Lynchburgh TN., it is indeed a sad day for all drunkards, er, sots, er, admirers of the finer tastes in life. Eagel, take off your gasmask and pass the JD, we gots ta make a toast to a fallen distant cousin of JD! R & E, CW. hiccup
CW...it's almost like watching Armegeddon to see all that Jim Beam go up in smoke. We should at least go help them empty the tanks of remaining spirits so the flames will be in our bellies instead of lighting up the sky. I'm sure it will help the flame thrower gain distance.
