Straight line winds vs a rain tornado?

I don't know what to call it but it was horrible!

DSC01529

This was the sight south of Elmwood Monday afternoon.

DSC01530

The road workers were hard at it around 4:15.

DSC01532

This was the sky as I left Linocln Monday afternoon, about 5:10.  The radio said that we were in a tornado

warning.  That's the one where you go to the basement!

DSC01535

But I kept driving.  And the weather got worse.

DSC01539

The black clouds seemed to eat up the bright blue sky.  I had to quit taking pictures so I could grip the wheel.

It was the worst storm I've ever driven in.  When I got to highway 1 I had to pull over for awhile.  Then as I approached

Elmwood the orange barrels that the construction workers use were flying through the air just like in "Twister" at least

it was barrels and not combines or cows coming towards me.

DSC01548

I made it home safely to watch the storm with my family.  The Campbells came over to take refuge.

DSC01562

Back at the Campbell ranch the cedar tree took a hit.

DSC01578

This building collapsed.

 

DSC01579

The bricks on the top of the building fell in the storm.

DSC01594

The park had some trees down.

DSC01595

The church entrance was blocked for awhile.

DSC01596

The water made a new stream through the  church yard.

DSC01598

Some signs were blown off.

DSC01623

Rick Hawks truck had a tree fall on the front of it.

DSC01625

DSC01634

The roof of this porch blew up.

 

DSC01637

Taylor watched as Mary moved a tree limb from her yard.

DSC01645

The rain ends and the winds calm.  The sky opens up to remind us that nature can be

destructive but can is also full of hope and beauty.

DSC01649

The clean up crews around town started immediately.  Tractors, pick ups with trailers, and

4-wheelers with chains hauled away load after load of brush.

Shay helped Vince move the big limbs out of our yard.

DSC01650

Jordyn and Ariel moved the little ones.

 

DSC01652

And Atticus got all the rest.

DSC01656

Kalee made it in from Wabash to have a fun evening with us without power.  We lit candles, made bacon and pancakes and talked.

It was great!

DSC01657

Tuesday morning dawned bright and clear.  Holdredge street going west from Highway 1 showed the damage that OPPD is dealing with.

 

DSC01658

This could be why some of us don't have power.  Some do though.  Highly unfair!

DSC01703

The trees in the cemetary were downed.

DSC01708

Power lines all over town were down, too.

DSC01717

David's huge tree fell on his house.  He was ready to chop it up and haul it away.

On a brighter note:  F Street is near completion!!!!!

DSC01714

And the Bruns construction team took care of the hole in the road in front of our house!

Brody Baer caught this giant catfish using his own nightcrawlers.

DSC01357

Brody sells the nightcrawlers from our garage and his house.  Stop by!

DSC01353

Brody won't tell us where he caught this, he would only tell us what kind of bait he used.

Mike was one of the grillers for the concession stand at the Nebraska City Lourdes game in Elmwood.

Elmwood Murdock won 41-14!

DSC01373

Wes was the second grill master.  The post prom committee ran the concessions as a fund raiser.

 

DSC01368

Jane, Cindy, and Connie ran the kitchen like a well oiled machine.

 

Greg Meyer's Barbershop is a great place for a haircut.

DSC01403

 

DSC01404

After Greg cuts your hair he gives you a little massage.

 

DSC01382

This is a hopping place on Saturday morning.

 

DSC01379

DSC01385

Greg is also a muscian.

DSC01383

Notice the old time barber chair?

DSC01405

The man cave.

DSC01406

Greg's shop is behind his house on East D Street.  Kind of hidden but worth the walk.  Greg is open

every day except Sundays and Mondays.  Stop in for a trim and some good conversation about

hunting, fishing, and football.
