Monroe County Tornado
We visited Mother today for Mother's Day. Took the opportunity to visit the torn do damaged area in the bottoms. The little burg of Meramac was almost destroyed. Meramac used to have a tavern and a baseball field. It was the home of the one room Walnut Grove School. At one time it had a post office. That is where my grandpa's Generation got mail when they were young. The three remaining homes were damaged in the storm. One of the homes is in the old schoolhouse. I know these things were already on TV and in the newspapers, but I decide I would post a picture of trees that were damaged because the damage was so impressive. In the picture trees or laying on the levee. The swath seemed pretty wide and skipped around a bit, but things were laying in every direction indicating tornado. There were roofs missing and homes damaged. Stuff was scattered all over the place.
Corn was being planted today and spraying and anhydrous application going on.
