Tornado May 25, 2011

Posted By on July 16, 2011

A tornado hit the Bridgeton Mill and covered bridge.  It tore the roof off the north side of the mill and knocked several boards off the bridge.  The mill has had extensive water damage from the missing roof.  One of our barns was hit by 3 trees.  Our campground was covered by fallen trees.  The tail race we spent years cleaning out is completely full of trees.  The mill pond has many logs and trees in it from an earlier flood.  We haven’t had time to work on the mill pond.  We restored the sifter, grist mill ….. etc.  3 1/2 weeks after the storm we were grinding.  Yes, we have good insurance.  The new roof is on the mill.  Workers are working on the barn.  Hope to get the porches on the mill fixed next week.  Still repairing windows.  Tail race????  Big problem.

    I can’t imagine how terrfiying these tornadoes must have been. I was wondering, do tornadoes only happen during the day, or can they strike in the night as well? I think I’d rather be here in Christchurch, New Zealand, with our big earthquakes, than somewhere with those tornadoes! Hope I don’t jinx things here Take careCarol
