Been a while since posting here but just wanted to pass on my condolences to those lost during the recent Midwest wave of tornadoes.
Parts of my hometown of Washington, Illinois were wiped off the map thanks to these freak storms.
We had some close calls where I live just 20 minutes away as well and parts of my current town got nailed by these asinine weather events.
If it wasn't for my health issues I would have been volunteering help but they turned away a ton of helpers for the onset of relief efforts so they could secure the region, which makes sense.
My brother and his boss and owner of a company there went in with the company's tractor to help out with cleanup. I imagine a lot of people did the same.
Here's what it looks like now:
And here's a before and after:
The two sections were new that are in the middle but the first lot of homes were old and the homes at the top were the same.
Luckily, most people were at church or going to church. Make of that what you want.
The Panthers spirit will rebuild-and remember.
