Must be the time of year for door flu. Yesterday as I tried to shut the garage door I heard a thump and the door had pulled away from the support bracket in the ceiling and fallen off the track. I was lucky it didn't fall on the side over my husband's prize 1952 Ford step-side. Had to call Bob to come home from Muskogee to fix it. Bob came, Bob fixed it, Bob rules!!

The coil springs can and have been leathal. Exercise extreme caution, its alot like electricity you can't back away quickly enough. A close friend spent several months out of work because of this.

Yikes! All these stories of garage door springs gives me the willies! I'm surprised no one has invented a way to make the system work without producing shrapnel when it fails. Seems like the CPSC would be all over it!

I think I have sufficient war story "fear of God" to just leave it to the professionals. It's just two more days without the newer truck and I can deal with the walk around the front of the house (I certainly need the exercise) and save myself from physical harm. Of course I may get that physical harm if/when it rains Thursday and my wife has to walk out to the drive way to get in her auto to go to school.
