Three Years

Today marks 3 years since the tornado went through Deltaville. 

 A boat in the middle of a field

 Telephone pole sheared off at the bottom
 This pine tree was literally twisted by the twister

 The tennis courts
 My dad demonstrating just how large that root ball is

The area where our shed used to be.
No, the tornado didn't dump junk in the yard, 
that was in the shed.
Note the neighbor's vehicle with the large hole in the windshield
I believe that was from our paddle boat being thrown into it.

 Zoar Baptist Church with a large bite out of the middle

 A house that was tossed into the creek

 Removing the large oak trees off of our house

 House behind us

the pool

There was a lot of destruction, but there was no loss of life.
No one was even injured-
not even the various pets that were sucked out of homes 
or buried under debris.
Things changed though, and that's the hardest to deal with (for me).
I'd rather Deltaville stay the same as it was in the late 70's and 80's.
Instead it just seems to keep changing and growing and 
getting too big for the britches I'd prefer it wear.
A "funny" coincidence- delta Δ  is the mathematical symbol for change.

  1. I'll never forget that brick church with the chunk taken out. Quite humbling, the whole episode.

    Also, change sucks the older we get. I'm way older than you so I am allowed to say I HATE IT.
