    There were several hundred people working when it hit. We have a very good emergency plan and had a drill a couple weeks ago. No injuries amongst the employees.

    Real lucky here. Some damage around our town. Mostly roofs, windows, fences, trees and trampolines.
    Couple photos...

    The company sent word through the local media that we are not to report to work until Wednesday. Guess that gives me a few extra days to get stuff pulled together for the Midwest Bicycle Swap.

    More pics from the damage at Spirit

    The building in the very back of this pic is Plant II, where I work. I have gotten word from inside the plant that the roof over the north end of the building has been torn off.

    Glad everyone is okay. Sorry about the damage.
    We've got some tornadoes coming through now (~75F) then rain and snow by tomorrow morning.

    Secret leaked pics from my plant at work.

    The yellow rails are part of one of the cranes I operate.

    Oh, there is where the roof went.

    The brown overturned object in this pic is a railcar that carries parts of the Boeing 777 from Wichita to Seattle. I unloaded the tools from that car a couple nights before the storm. The car in the foreground was slated to be loaded with a 737 fuselage tonight.

    Cameron,
    Glad everyone at the plant is OK.
    And that you and your family are fine... Real glad you weren't at work when the storm came through.

    Hope the weather mellows out for everyone soon!
