MILLINGTON TWP. - A 12-month-old baby in a crib escaped injury after apparently being tossed 40 feet by a tornado that destroyed a Millington Township home and other property early today.

Millington Township fire officials were shocked to learn that the baby and the family whose home was destroyed were not injured as the tornado swept through southern Tuscola County damaging multiple homes, trees and knocking down power lines.

"Sometimes miracles happen," said Millington Township firefighter Dan Detgen during breakfast this morning with fellow emergency workers at a Millington restaurant shortly after officials left the scene.

"It did out there," added Millington Township Fire Chief Ron Daenzer. The damage to the Millington Township home off Barnes Road between Irish and Fulmer roads took place around 1 a.m. today.

The emergency call came through as a home destroyed with a baby missing. By the time firefighters arrived, a neighbor had found the baby in an overturned crib under a pile of debris about 40 feet from the home, Daenzer said.

The family apparently was asleep in this rural area of open space and corn fields when the storm hit. The parents apparently fell one story down, but were able to walk out unharmed. The family and baby were examined at a local hospital and all were fine, Daenzer said. The 11/2-story home was nearly leveled as nothing was standing higher than six feet.

"I don't know why nobody was killed when you look at the devastation," Daenzer said. "But everybody's OK."

Good Morning

It seems we've used up all of the extra rain Al from Nova Scotia sent us. It cleared up last night but we had heavy frost. Its supposed to warm up today and reach the mid 50's.(ya'll realize warm is relative, right)

Hope you have a enjoyable, calm stress free tuesday.

Take care and be safe,

Gary.

Good Morning

Here is something to hopefully brighten your day.

A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. 'What's it about?' he asked. 'I don't know,' she replied. 'I can't read.'

Have a good one,

Gary

Wonderful, heart-warming story! So much of the news is negative, yucky, and frightening, that I appreciate hearing of something that makes me smile. Thanks for sharing.

Good Morning

And they think we are stupid Newfies.......

A Newfie walked into a bank in Toronto and asked for the loans officer. He told the loans officer that he was going to Newfoundland on business for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 however he was not a depositor of the bank.

The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Newfie handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Newfie produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Newfie for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan.An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Newfie returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, "Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The Newfie replied: "Where else in Toronto can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?"


As you can see salt beef, salt cod and Black Horse Beer are good for the brain!!!!!

Have a great day and hug a newfie when you can (ladies i'm available any time).........We are good luck!!!!!!!!!

Take care and be safe
