There is an island that goes out into Bayou St John , with very rich houses on it , a tornado went thru yesterday and hit just one house and destroyed it , the houses next door were untouched , the guy is a well known neon artist , they were showing video of his house , the house was built of old cypress , the roofs gone , the inside the house a total mess , his wife and dog under the rubbish survived , most of his art works destroyed , amazing how selective Mother nature can be
I still find this amazing, how storms can be so selective on what gets damaged and what doesn';t
this yr we had a lot of major storms, and twisters, and seen a lot of houses GONE and others next door not get a scratch, or lone tree's standing in sections that got total wiped out! from things
makes one wonder
and that's a shame on them old cypress timbers, there far and few these days
most of them BIG one's were all timbered away so long ago, people just took for granted back then , that they were killing o!ff all the big one's and greed took over I guess, as it does when money is involved!
the Buffalo of the south them trees were, and they went over brad cutting them down!
