“Both barns were blown away,” he said, “I’ve got ... maybe $75-80,000 worth of bull semen in a couple of tanks that spilled over. Holes in the roof, trees on the garage, sheet metal in the wires....what was my reaction? Thank God we wasn’t here,” he said, adding that he’d have been panicked if he had been home during the storm.

He said he was thankful that the damage was not worse than it is.
