Stormy weather

What's the word on weather where you are? A neighbor tells us by telephone of signs of wind damage to Cook Automotive on Main Street. Cook lost its Chrysler/Jeep dealership this week in the company' reorganization.

UPDATE: Just got back from a looksee, and yep, it's a mess. The whole south wall of the building is lying in a heap of smashed cinderblock in the parking lot. Luckily no cars damaged, though owner Paul Cook (in photo above) said that just yesterday the lot beside the wall was lined with vehicles. "Luckily we moved them out of there this morning," Cook said.

On this latest catastophe, Cook said: "This is like the icing on the cake."
