We were on our way to OKC to record and thought we'd see how things were. There's some attempts at rebuilding but the destruction is still evident. No trees, no shrubs, on the south side of town very few original house remain. Older trees stripped of leaves & branches. Here's a short video I took. I'll post a few pics I took too. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jf1mGx20sFU Joplin has a nice downtown but when a substantial amount of the population's homes are leveled, the economic effects are near insurmountable.
