I was not home when the storm went past the house, but here are some pictures taken after it went . My wife said it sounded like a train coming through. The main damage was to houses to the east of us, Basically, it looks like the "tornado" came through damaging the trees in homes on the east side of Thompson Drive (we live at the west corner of Thompson and Main St.) the two homes on Main Street and the flower shop. Most of the damage is just trees, poles, wires, and windows, except a couple of sheds at the flower shop and one house.
