Crazy Thunderstorm Damage

We had a crazy thunderstorm, 76 mph winds, quarter size hail, and lots of damage all over the area.

It was so loud I thought it was a tornado, the wind picked up a bit and it sarted raining hard. I was about to leave for the post office, but thought I would wait for the rain to slow down first, when suddenly it got pitch black out, the wind was blowing so hard you couldn’t see anything out the window. It sounded like a train was coming, and hail started pounding the roof and windows. We went into the bathroom because it has no windows. Then smash, the bedroom window shattered and all we could do is listen as rain, hail, and wind whistled in.

After the storm passed, which was only a few minutes, the cable was out for hours. 16 units in my building had broken windows, trees were down all over. Thousands in the area were without power, but we were lucky to still have ours. There was damage all over the area, trees down, cars destroyed, roofs blown off. It was a mess.

Memorial Day Remembering Things

Bradford Town Hall, the site of many family, friend, and town events, growing up.

She’s for sale, very run down, and in need of a paintjob.

My Grandmother’s sorority used to meet here. I registered my first car here.

My Mom’s wedding was here, as was many family reunions,

Bradford Days, and family n friends weddings too. At one event the light fell from

 the ceiling and landed on a pregnant woman who was fine, and the party went on.

Remembering things in the past is fun. Walking down memory lane. A little bit of nostalgia.

I hope whoever buys her keeps her the way she was, it should be designated historic, and I have no idea why it is not.
