Burlington's Hurricane

May 30,2013

Today was our prep day and we went to Burlington to shop for material.  You understand that is a lengthy process and we were ready to leave Jo Ann's when a storm came boiling up.  We have been in an edge of the tornado warnings for two days.  When I opened the door the sirens were going off, so we all went into a secure area and took a radio.  The wind blew sustained at 81 miles an hour.  A level one hurricane starts at 75 so we were in an inland hurricane.  No tornadoes, thank goodness but wind and rain--wow!  When we drove home we observed considerable damage to older farms an buildings--part of one was out in the highway.  We got home in time to perform!!!!!   EH
