Tornado

Here are 2 photos I took of what I saw when I returned home to Alma. The top one I took from the side yard to show a different perspective. The bottom photo I took from the top deck. I can tell you that no photo shows the reality of my back yard. Photos seem to lack the proper depth and layers of reality. Though I had seen lots of photos and told that it was a mess, I was not prepared for what I saw; the reality of this. Work men who have come so far; one or 2 each day are blown away (no pun intended) by what they see. One told me that it looks like a battle zone and each of the others cannot believe their eyes. Apparently this tornado came here to Eagle Crest and touched down in spots. I have been told that 70 trees on Eagle Crest Golf Course property have been felled and a tree here and there on personal properties. Also it touched down on someone’s roof here, but I have not been able to find that house. And it touched down here quite violently as you see and the biggest mess of all... except I think the roof gone is the worst. My house damage is minimal. I hope you enjoy!!!!

I'm glad you're safe and your house is okay. I hope you saw how a town in Kansas has rebuilt after the devastation of a tornado on the news tonight.
