The Rest of the Story: missing steeple

On Easter Sunday April 4th, I featured Highland United Methodist church steeple. At the end of my post, I mentioned that as of 4/3/10 the top portion of the steeple was missing. Monday morning I called the church office to
ask about it. I was told the steeple was struck by
lightning last summer. They told me it took from last summer until last week to find a company who could handle the removal, repair and return of the steeple top. They expect it back within a month. I'd love to be there to watch the steeple put back in place. The church has a preschool she told me the children had a blast watching the removal and are very excited about it's return.

Below before removal to the right after removal.

    PeeS. Madi - I meant to tell you I thinks it's really neat you're gonna go on date night with Riley and Tessa. Although I thinks you and Cap'n Ripley would make a Most Lovely (and interesting) couple.

  10. Wow! That's really interesting! The church is lucky that it only lost the top of the steeple when it was struck by lightning. So many times fires occur with lightning strikes!
