Farber Storm Cleanup Continues
Karen and Sterling Holdbrook spent Friday morning clearing tree branches and other debris from their yard and small, white house where they have lived for 44 years.
"I have never seen anything like this in Farber," said Sterling. "[I] hope I never do again.
The Holdbrooks' glass patio addition needs repair, their fence needs mending and Karen's flower beds need replanting.
"Even though we were distraught by all of the debris and trees down, we had to laugh out loud because there is the Lawn of the Month [award] we received, and look at all of the junk everywhere."
But the Holdbrooks feel fortunate the damage wasn't worse.
"We are just thankful that none of it hit our home and that trees and fences can be repaired," said Karen. "So the Lord looked after us and we are so thankful for that."
Residents and volunteers are piling storm debris in a field where they will burn it later. The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for Farber on Thursday, but it's not clear a twister hit the tiny town.
