  • we watched it from my back yard, we saw it form but never touch down.

    I live on smith street, it was interesting to see the clouds come from one side and then meet from the other and swirl. Thank god it never formed fully and hurt anyone.

  • Ok, this is so totally off topic...... I just found out you used to could order houses through Sears and Roebuck catalog. That just amazes me for some reason. I know you are up on history around here, know anything about that? http://www.oldhouseweb.com/architecture-and-design/sears-homes-old-catalog.shtml

  • That is the neatest thing! I bet I have seen a bunch of them before and just not realized it. Thanks for sharing, CanThisB.

  • titansfan,

    We actually have copies of the old Sears and Roebuck home catalogs that gave the prices and plans. Montgomery Ward also sold home packages. I think most of the catalogs are 1903, 1904, 1905, etc, etc.,,
