Default Tornado at Jerome's Bar and Grill

ok. i wasnt exactly in the eye of the hurricane but it was close enough (ppg and tribune reported the tornado actually touched down in a housing area uptown):

these are when it started to get bad-




this is when it got bad. as you can see i was sitting on the floor, kind of under a table with the rest of the patrons, however, im not 1 to miss a photo op-



i was the 1st to come out of hiding. standing by a pane of glass isnt the smartest thing, but hell, you only live once-





and then it passed. the aftermath-

Did any of the windows get shattered? It looked like the patio furniture kinda got tossed around there.

since all the bar employees were grabbing tables and chairs out of the foliage between the restraunt and river i walked down the steps seen in the patio pictures to see if i could find a souvenier that i could fit on the plane such as one of the many black and gold grille36 banners that hang on the front of the building. i found this metal patio table top right by the river. cooler heads prevailed when i decided not to try and take it home-




this light pole mustve taken a direct hit. it was about to fall over-



nice pic of the stadium. this downed tree was later reported on the evening news as it was screwing up traffic-



note the metal garbage can holder-



i think i found the garbage can-

the only windows shattered were some panes at the science center right beside heinz field. appearantly a little girl was cut by flying glass. unfortunately the damage ruined our plans to go to the science center on friday as it was closed for repairs

the weather was not kind to me on the trip. our pirates game was canceled. experienced power outage all night to lightning strike. the millvale floods, and finally this at the restraunt. now i know why i live in the desert.
