PostSubject: You Get Snow ..... I Get A Tornado!   Fri Feb 15, 2008 9:39 pm

We had a tornado hit here just a few days back. I wasn't sure if any other you other ladies knew. I went around today and took a few pictures. I tried to be respectful of HOME OWNERS and not shoot any homes .... and believe me there were quite a few that had damage. Trees on houses, vehicles, uprooted. Blown away shingles, and just lots of wind damage. The photos below are of a couple businesses that are about 8-10 min from my house. This is the second tornado that has come close to me, but not nearly as close as the one I encountered in Nashville around 1998 where I was without power for nearly 2 weeks!

Anyhow, Below are some picts of the industrial section that got hit pretty hard. There are quite a few people unemployed now and that damaged homes. Although the most that happened to mine was a few shingles were missing .... 37 to be exact, my heart goes out to those with great losses!

This is COOPER LIGHTING, their business was ripped too pooo! You can see inside their building quite well and they have security there so that no one can enter and take things from the exposed palates. To make matters worse for this business, it caught on fire during the tornado. These photos were taken today, so it's apparent it's going to be a slow recovery process..





I do not know the name of the business that is in the photo below. I dubbed it the 330 building. I know that it's right across the street from the park I take my kids to play at and this is the one, although you can't tell in the photos, that had 2 semi's over turned and tossed INSIDE the building. When I drove by 3 days ago, the semis were there, but today it looked like they had been removed.









The following business is also unknown to me.... and honestly there's not much of it left for me to try to figure out what it used to be .... but it's demolished. This photo is what it looked like from the tornado NOT THE CLEAN UP!



I know that this could happen anywhere, but I just wanted to ask everyone to keep everyone that was affected by this tornado in their thoughts.

That is really sad, and scary! I guess I can stop complaining about the snow now, at least I still have my house. Hopefully no one was seriously hurt in all of this, and I'm glad, as you are I'm sure, that it didn't come any closer to you!
The weather this year has just been crazy! Today it is pouring rain!!! Shocked
