from the muzzer

As you may know, I spent last week in St. Loulis. While there, I took some photos of the damage at the airport (see below) but also discovered how Gussie is funding these trips to New Yawk and across the big pee.

The little devil has a thriving pretzel business in St. Loulis! As I think back, I remember seeing some evidence of this the summer we spent visiting there. I hope he is doing well enough to take care of me in my old age.

Also, here are two (bad) photos of the airport taken a week ago when I arrived.
In the photo above, you can see some of the plywood squares along the front portion of the airport, but you can also see the cracks in the window that I shot the picture through.
And here is the same shot, through another window, without the cracks. By the time I left Friday afternoon, plywood was visible in more places, including the cracked window. I would estimate 70% of the arched windows were damaged. St. Louis was so fortunate that there was no loss of life in the tornado there.

It was truly amazing that there weren't more serious injuries and truly no deaths. One time we were glad Dad wasn't traveling.

Oh, what scary pictures! Of course, we hear stuff on the news but it always seems more real when our blog friends tell us about it! Thank goodness nobody got hurt, though!

By the way, am so glad you liked my human's Oxford post - she's put up Part 2 now - hope you enjoy it too!
