I headed over to my friend, Bill Gunn's house in Fenton on an unusually balmy (temp. in the 60s!) New Year's Eve Day to take some family photos. Bill has a great family, and we had a good time getting some fun pics. We headed outside, but that session was cut short as a thunderstorm rolled in. I left shortly thereafter, and as I turned on to 141 to head North towards home, I was caught in some traffic. I noticed the church had damage to it's roof and a tree was torn up, and then the ambulance and police started arriving. Traffic stopped and I got out of the car and saw a car (pictured below) flipped over. It wasn't until later that day that I learned an F3 tornado had passed through town and done tremendous damage. It was reported that there were no major injuries or deaths in town, so I can assume the people in the car were ultimately OK. Several homes were completely destroyed, however. It proved to be a New Year's Eve that will be long remembered. . .
