Piedmont Tornado Damage 05/24/2011

Yesterday, we closed our office so that we could be out & about, helping the folks devastated by Tuesday’s tornadoes. As was expected, it was an emotionally exhausting day, as we saw and heard one story after another of that tragic day. Here are a few of the photos we took, which don’t even do […]

Pictures of the Edmond Tornado of Feb 2009

Yesterday was a miserable, storm-ridden one for many folks in Oklahoma. Tornadoes can be fickle, and these were no different. Doing extensive damage to one home, while leaving the one next door untouched is a common characteristic, and while driving a few Edmond neighborhoods today, I saw a wide range of damage.

Oklahoma Tornadoes – Fear Them?

There’s one topic that always seems to be hot in the minds of anyone looking to move to Oklahoma.  Maybe it starts when we’re kids, watching the classic ‘Wizard of Oz‘ or maybe it’s the images on the news, and the unknown that fosters the fear.  Whatever the cause, it seems that almost every buyer I’ve ever […]
