It's Thankful Thursday and today this will take a bit of a different approach. When we moved here almost 10 years ago, we quickly became aware of a historical mill in the old part of town. It had been here since the 1902 and had had wheat as well as sugar beets and was the busiest business in town. It radically and permanently altered the town. In May of 2008, when a tornado ripped through Windsor, the mill was damaged extensively. Since then, the town has sought out investors to repair and remodel it; just recently we have seen tremendous amounts of work being done by Blue Ocean, hoping to bring in lots of small businesses, a brewery and a restaurant. The entire town was looking forward to this. The first two pics are from the damage the tornado did; this is how the building looked up until this last year.
What are you thankful for today?
