Devastation in Picher / Opening & Fund-Raiser for Picher


There’s not much to say about the tornado that hit Picher on Saturday.  This ravaged town already had so little.  The twister flattened much of what was left, took 6 lives with it, and left I-don’t-know how many in the hospital.  Soon I suppose the place will really be abandoned. 

We’ll go ahead with our opening this Friday, stemming from the field trip we took in March, but man this is a sad week.  I’ll drive down tomorrow to see what I can learn and how we can help.  In the meantime, the gig on Friday will serve as a fund-raiser.  There are lots of old people and little kids who ain’t got nothing down there right now–not as bad as Myanmar, but bad enough.
