A great picture! Reminds me of what I saw in 1956 in Standale, MI - A cardboard box of toothpicks impaled into a telephone pole; box AND many wooden toothpicks. Believe it or not!

When you see something like this you never forget. About 50 years ago I saw straw pushed through a tree in the Scottsbluff NE area-unbelievable!

Posted in the wrong state but still an awesome picture! Saw a picture once where a pen [or something of that nature] had been driven through a 2x4 by a tornado's force.

It is hard to comprehend wind of the velocities there have been but things like this really put it in perspective. Thanks Arlene
