Today was the six month anniversary of the Joplin Tornado that hit in May. I took this photo a few days ago of the remains of St. John with the cross of St. Mary’s. Before the tornado I don’t think you would have seen them at the same time because other structures would have prevented that vantage point.
It’s amazing how much has been accomplished, but it will be a long time before Joplin is back to normal. Heavy equipment is a mainstay at the moment.
