"Find The American Flag And Raise It Up Over What's Left Of The House..."

The photo above shows what may very well be the "first flag raising" after the North Minneapolis tornado. Moments after the disaster, upon learning the house of NoMi "Super Citizen" Megan Goodmundson was severely damaged, I started making phone calls from my barracks in Mississippi and asking friends to go help Megan.

One of the first calls I made...

...was to the super-handy and helpful friend who stays at my house while I am deployed. He's ex-military, so he totally understood the first order of business was:

"Find the American flag and raise it up over what's left of the house."

Pictured above is the flag raising. Though a damaged tree is visible in the background, it's not obvious from this angle that the roof has been torn off the house.

Fortunately, there was insurance and the roof is being replaced.

Look at the first hosta in the garden bed - it's totally wind blown over. LoL.
