Tornado siren


The 2010 census reports 80 residents of this town. There are approximately 20 horns on the tornado siren, which seems like ample coverage, doesn’t it?

Historical Note #1: The 2012 Google Street View is siren-free, so it’s an apparently recent addition.

Historical Note #2: My spouse lived in this town for a year or two when he was a kid, and the location of the famous family story How Larry Broke His Tooth is just around the corner from where I stood to take this shot.

    • It’s not that exciting, as stories go, but that hasn’t stopped endless repetition…Larry and his sister were running to school; she was in front and tripped and fell. He tripped, too, and his tooth caught her plastic headband. For a long time he had a silver tooth in front; by the time we met, he had a tooth-colored replacement.

      (The Nebraska trip was the Nostalgia Tour 2014, so I heard – or, actually, re-heard – all the old family stories.)
