About a month ago I was finally released from house arrest (figuratively of course) so the "old Salt" arranged for us to spend some time with friends who have a timeshare in Branson, Missouri. We never dreamed that a major tornado would hit the area the day before we arrived. Everyone was scurrying to get the area cleaned up, the shows open and provide vacation fun as usual for the busloads of tourist that visit Branson each week.
Today, I am sharing some of the photos I took during our stay that contain the color red, in honor of the weekly memes devoted to that color.
Should you decide to eat in this barn shaped chicken restaurant you will have to enter by walking between the chicken's legs.
This is the same restaurant. What you can't see is all the tornado damage to the silo that is just out of camera view
This shot and the one below this are both of the same building. The roof was lifted up, intact, and ended up leaning against the back of the building like a broken lunch box lid..
Even Santa was trapped in the rubble for a while
I got the feeling that every crane in the state was busy in Branson.
Sorry, this is not a great shot because I took it through our windshield, but I had to share it anyway. This 1957 Chevy has stood atop that Auto Museum sign as long as I can remember. But, in a few short minutes the wind took its roof and doors without leaving a scratch on the rest of the car.
