In all our years, 83 and 82, respectively, Henry and I had never experienced a tornado until Friday, Oct. 30. We had seen the effects of a twister at least once when we lived on Plum Street. It was late evening and it had been raining some. Then we heard a swooshing sound through the kitchen door. We had screen doors back then. When we went out to see what had made that sound, we discovered that a large chinaberry tree that we had in the yard next to the large cement driveway, which Henry had built for the Falstaff truck, next to the carport, had been uprooted. We didn’t see any other damage. Later we found out that a mobile home had been destroyed in the mobile home park up the road on the corner of Fourth Street and Sutherland Springs Road. It was the same mobile home park that our son, Larry, later purchased. Usually a twister skips around. . . .
