4809 BB well there's damage on that reflector on the 12200 watt, port side upper, you look inside, see it, weird place for it to happen.
4826-ambi to 4831 Those are yours, the big ones? we rented em
4921 BB the only thing I owned is now incinerated. 4930
4930 NC the way those steel plates completely distorted DM as though they were affected by outside when really they were sucked in, hose clamps NC and what's that white stuff? That's the glass. it's just powder, inside those things are the ballasts which were inside the balls, probably about a tenth their size, and the white stuff that looks like snow is actually the glass. That's all that's left of those glass balls. NC powdered and fussed looks like concrete. I wonder what texture is probably like fiberglass SW it crystallizes it, and it force is so great it fuses it into a lump of glass, also some kind of plastic in it. That's what it normally does. Shreds of black tape, vent plu sticking up. Like impact welding? Basically on my vehicle. DM Well, the vehicle stood up remarkably well actually, it's built like a tank 5107
5120 DM clearly one of the balls went, and then the other went SW were able to see, port went, and saw flash coming across and the other went and we lost video. DM Sympathetic implosion is such a picturesque term for this 5146 to 50
