Default Tornado

Well gang, ole Mother Nature dealt my wife and me a blow night before last.
A tornado hit our house and destroyed it.
Her the dog and I rode it out and are fine, unhurt.
Damaged the top on the 33 Pontiac, the 52 I've been building for a customer. Both are reparable.
It totaled my 110 year old farm house but, the shop is OK and only sustained minor damage.
The other side of the house is worse, don't know why I don't have a pic of It.

Wow so sorry to hear and see this. As an owner of a 104 year old house here in Fla. I would be devastated if I lost it. My house made it through the eye of Irma without losing a shingle but by time it hit here it was only about 80mph winds. Tornadoes can also happen here too. It is amazing and awful to see how this thing skipped over the garage just to hit the home instead. I am glad you are ok and hope that you can rebuild.

I am glad that no one was hurt. I can't even begin to imagine that happening.
Strength to you and your family during the clean up and rebuilding.
