May 3rd, 1999

Our house about 5 minutes after the tornado hit. Regina, Matt and the dog hid in the bathtub, which is partially buried under some debris.






This is a view of the house from the street. As you can see, there were no walls standing and car which was in the garage is now sitting backwards where the kitchen used to be.





This is looking west up our street. The tornado crossed right where this picture was taken. I don't know who the woman is running down the street.






Santa Claus showed up to help us with the clean-up. He's a little thinner in the summertime. No, really that's Gene, my chase partner who spent all that night hauling us around trying to get us out of there. Thanks, Gene!
