Notes: While working on a house with an Amish group, we met the Mitchell family from Iowa. They have since joined our team and are known as the "Iowa Connection"


Writings of Volunteer Lori wolf: Most of the driving we have done in town here has been on the main streets. lots are completely cleared. Everything that was left has been bulldozed. We did take an alternate route this afternoon on the way back to supper. I think that was when we got a real taste of what things were really like after the storm. 

Along this route the roads were cleared, but that was about it. The houses were still there, most smashed completely. Many moved off there foundations, and with trees laying over the roofs and furniture, clothing and you name it spread all over the yards. Along with debris from vehicles, etc. UNBELIEVABLE!!!
