Maple Lane Storm Shelter Progress

After raining nearly two inches Tuesday night, the skies have cleared and the sun is shining. Despite delays from two weeks of rainy Thursdays and Fridays, work is progressing on the Maple Lane Storm Shelter. This building will serve as a shelter for nearby residents in case of a tornado or windstorm, and also as an enclosed picnic shelter for residents to rent from the city for picnics and other gatherings.

The picture above shows the crew from Prairie Construction tying rebar and forming the walls for the shelter. The concrete for the walls will be pured in about a week. The picture also shows the clear sky we enjoyed today!

I like the idea of the storm shelter having a dual purpose. Someone was really thinking when they came up with that idea! Way to go!
