Tragedy in TN, residents in uproar!

This news just in! Aug. 5 - 6, a storm ravaged Finchville, TN.  The damage to Sparrow Hall from the storm has yet to be fully realized as the city engineers investigate the F.I.G. foundation. Mayor Robin suspects the whole structure will have to be razed before winter.



Residents are concerned as tweets are spreading rumors about the possible relocation of the Hall and parking area.


A few comments from the area:
A. Kingbird says, "There was a lot of lightning, wind, and rain."
"It's the government's fault," M. Dove said.
Mr. & Mrs. B. W. Quail refused to comment. They came to gawk, not talk.
M. Sparrow was distraught. "Half of our garden is gone," he said.
"My dry and fluff branch area is gone, just G O N E!" Mrs. Cardinal said.


 Mr. Cardinal has nothing to say, he's tired of listening to that wet hen.

    1. It was getting pretty dry here, and then we got a good storm. The soft ground and strong wind made the fig suckers weak - over they went. Looks like more are going to fall soon. :(

  2. You have Quail in your yard? We have them at the ranch but I wish we had them here in town. Poor Mrs. Cardinal looks a mess.

    1. I swear they understand each other, they seem upset about it. There was a row of them looking right at it and it was like they were saying, "What happened?" When a noisy vehicle goes by, they act confused, the branches aren't all there anymore.

  7. Hi S.J. and first I want to thank you for the sweet comment you left me on my blog, it meant a lot to me that you took the time to write! I haven't watched the news in a couple of months now since my antenna was blown about in a storm so I lost all my stations and had not heard about the storms you guys were enduring. Poor garden and wildlife! I hope things are back on a more even keel now? The weather here has actually been priceless (to me anyway) with temps in the 70's and only short rain storms (enough to keep the garden happy) although this week we do have a chance of thunderstorms all week long! People have been telling me that they see signs of Autumn already so this feels like the shortest summer ever but then who knows what September will bring??? Take care and stay dry S.J.....

    1. Actually Tina, It has been hot and dry, but the one night and morning a stray storm came through and battered the bejesus out of my fragile little bird habitat. (Sparrow Hall)
      Temps in the 70s - where do you live, heaven?
      Yes, seeing signs of autumn here too. The big spider nests in the trees are sooner and the trees/shrubs/grasses are fading.
      Nice hearing from you!
