  1. Gerard loves to post on every article we have. He is negative towards just about every one of them.

    I have family fairly close to that area, thats very frightening to see the damage that caused.

  2. You jackass. Most of those places in the picture are unrecognizable. Maybe you’ve never been outside of your trailer park to see the country, but Windsor Colorado is a beautiful town with great homes and people. Of course there are trailers around, it’s a farming town. They work hard and require equipment to supply you with the food you stuff in your face every day. You should think twice before you add insult to injury so openly.
