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
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.
