Greensburg’s Spirit

One of the things I like about Greensburg is its plucky spirit.  I was emailing on this topic with my brother this morning and I recalled that, in addition to the wire tornado in front of the World’s Largest Hand Dug Well (see below), is the “tornado swing.”

When Katie Bay and I visited the city a year after the tornado, we found that someone had pulled a tire and rope out of a debris pile, attached it to a debarked, twisted tree and made a swing.  You gotta love it!

  1. Mike, thanks for your consistent support of Greensburg. Folks out here REALLY appreciate it.I run Greensburg GreenTown and would be happy to give you a tour next time you are in town. The buildings (including our Silo eco-home) are all being completed and there are lots of interesting things to see.
