Memorial Day 1994 - aka the Holiday from Hell

The tornado came through around 3 a.m. These pictures were all taken during the next day. The sheriff estimated it was one of 8 or more in our valley that night.

View from the deck - the deck furniture was all on the lawn because we had just stained the deck. None of it was damaged!
Towards the driveway
The top of the driveway - all the trees missed the truck!

Trees across the driveway
We weren't going anywhere for a while - we guess this was 30-40 trees across the driveway and in the front yard

The casualty
Black cherry waiting for the trip to the lumber mill and firewood pile
