Progress, not storm damage
In August of 2009, several fire engines screamed past my house and stopped less than a block away. The last one blocked the road at my corner. When I dashed outside to investigate, black smoke was beginning to billow up from the church on the next corner. I hurried down the block and got a few early photos with my cell phone. I came home to post the news on my blog and on Facebook that St. Elmo Church is ablaze, right now. A lot of my clergy friends are familiar with this church, including one currently serving the English-speaking church in Austria and one former pastor of this congregation. I got only a single photo posted before power went out in our block.
