This post is part of a coalition of architects posting on a single topic, each interpreting it in their own way, known as Architalks. This month the topic is your “New Year, New _____”
On December 26th, around 7pm, my home town of Rowlett was hit by an EF4 tornado. This is the sort of thing you hear about on the news, that you don’t see first hand. I can’t recall that I’d ever seen a disaster of this scale in person, and certainly not in my community. It really makes you stop and think about your priorities.
