sstrams... remember me posting your worlds smallest skyscraper...

May 24, 2023 01:10PM
The photo below was our most notable 'countryside' landmark. We had some taller structures IN town but in the country this was it. And notice I said "was".

Every person that grew up out here on the westside, several small towns, knew this landmark. It is no more. Accident... a car drove off the nearby road, (no injuries), struck it and did major damage. It was still standing after the accident (tough old lady) - but was now a hazard so it was torn down. This silo had been here since before I was born... and now it's gone.

Can you grieve a silo? What am I asking? Of course you can because that's exactly what I'm doing.
