WOOD RIVER, IL
In this pic, it is plain to see what happened. The upper arm was replaced with two rubber chickens. ugh.
As some of you know, on Wednesday, 19JUL2006 7:30PM, A VERY powerful storm blew through the St. Louis Metro area, causing over half a million power outages. On Friday, 21JUL2006 11:15AM, Another similarly powerful storm again devastated an already hard hit area. This storm rolled through just a hair over 36 hours after the first one. On Thursday, Ameren had restored power to some 200,000 customers, just to have them, and more knocked out with Friday's storms. I kept my rubbernecking to a bare minimum, so I would not get in the way of the crews, some working over 48 hours when these pics was taken, doing their jobs.
