campers at the fair grounds in Vinton

Devistation outside the town of Vinton

When you live in the country you don't have other houses blocking wind or trees for wind break. We got hit out here and we got hit hard. We just got our yard looking nice and the way we wanted it and just got a play area fenced in for our 2 very young boys. They no longer have a swing set or play area. My husband does construction and over half of his ladders were damaged. No one is covering the area around the outside of Vinton. We are healing and cleaning up too.
