Recovery…More of Life after a Tornado

Here are some pictures as we began to start over…starting with the demo of our old home…can you see me in the edge of the photo…looking for anything we might could still save….as the house was torn down with contents still in it….couldn’t get them out…many a tear shed that day…
The end of our house...contents and all..by the time 25 in. of rain fell, there was a foot of mud inside the house!

 This is the front of the new house next door…our daughter couldn’t wait for the porch to be done…that meant we’d get mail again..

The roof took the majority of the damage…we had to fix rafters and decking..
