With the anniversary of the March 12, 2006 tornado that ravaged the Springfield, Illinois region last year just around the corner. I thought I would provide some amateur video shot by Cheryl's sister of the aftermath in her old neighborhood. The quality isn't the greatest. However I think it gives a decent overview of what the neighborhood went through last year.

Several hotels that sustained damage – Iggy Uncensored
A certain someone kept telling me these hotels would never open again. I can report that after a very long restoration process. That both the hotels that were severally damaged at this location are now back in operation. They have both been up and running for some time now. When I've driven by them – business looks good as well.
