Darrell and I took the kids out for a drive and went down to the town just south of us that got the worst of the tornado damage last May. This is what we saw. While a lot of progress has been made in the clean-up of debris, there is still a lot left. Then again, there is nothing left. This poor little town was just wiped out.Some of these people have already received their insurance money and moved on, some are still waiting for a settlement, some have no idea what they will do. Most are not coming back. There's no town to come back to.
While these next few shots may make for boring pictures, they were actually the saddest scenes for me to see. There are many areas that look like this- just a cleared lot, or only a foundation remaining. Just a hint of where a home once stood, and memories were made.
