The Damage

Yesterday was a day trip and the destination was north to Southampton to visit some friends.  The route led us through Goderich, near our home town of Clinton.  Days after the tornado went through Goderich, most of the town is now open to traffic although the cleanup as a result of the damage continues.

Pictures can’t do justice to the damage that was done to buildings in the town.  What a devastating event.

We took a few pictures on our way through but this is the image that has the most impact on me.

I have been to the "square" hundreds of times but this is something that I’ve never seen before.  It’s the complete courthouse.  Why haven’t I seen it before?  Before the tornado damage, the grounds were full of beautiful trees.  A typical view of the courthouse would look like this.
