Almost like before: George; Burton of Springhome Rd. in Barrie; above; can smile today because he's got a new roof on his home and his wife's hand; seriously cut by flying glass during the tornado; is healing. He's shown on the roof of his house; in almost the same spot his son; Bill; was kneeling when the photo at right was taken just a couple of hours after the tornado struck. The street is cleaned up now and many of the damaged houses have been repaired and the overturned cars and debis are gone. But so are most of the young trees and flowers that had dressed up this subdivision. Open in full size
