on the phone with my parents, my dad just told me, "wauseon is on fire."
wauseon [county seat; pop. 7000] is about ten minutes from where i grew up, and where i used to attend church for a few years. it appears an entire half a city block in the heart of downtown was destroyed. this is a huge hit for such a small town. but they will pull through...
small towns are like that.
i don't know how many old friends read this blog regularly, but here is some info.

oh, no. i grew up in a town of about 10thousand and it's got a great little square in the center of town. my dad owned a building on the square that was demolished and that was bad enough. i know they will all pull together and get through it, though, because you're right. small towns are like that.
