Sewanee Tornado

Well, the winter wind definitely blew at Sewanee last week! I was fortunate enough to have missed the tornado that set down near the airport and that twisted and fell trees, ripped off roof shingles and made a mess of things in the Midway Community. I knew my drive home was a strange one that day as I watched lightening strike from black clouds and arrived home to a yard full of half-dollar sized hail!

The photo above was taken by Ben Beavers as he stood on the front porch of Shenanigans Restaurant in Sewanee looking across Highway 41A toward the Sewanee Market and, thus, the airport.

Lions and tigers and bears Oh no! I am so afraid of tornados, and this one looks fierce. You are blessed to have missed this one. I admire the strength of all those who live in Tornado territory. So glad that you are okay.
