Tornadoes and hurricanes destroy classic cars in the South.
Up north in Plainview, Minnesota, another weather extreme gets the blame for ruining a pole barn full of collector vehicles, including a C1 Corvette and an RV.
The red ‘Vette, owned by Dave Doane, appears to be peeking out from under the metal roof, seeking help from the roof that collapsed on top of it and several other classics from the weight of heavy snow followed by rain.
“They were in mint condition, and yes, he was very proud of his cars and it was spotless. So this is sure a sad situation and I’m sure it hurts the whole family,” Mary Evers told a KTVB-TV reporter.
That wasn’t the only damage reported in Minnesota over the weekend by the heavy snow.
A swimming pool at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites was filled with debris after the roof collapsed early Sunday morning, but fortunately, no injuries were reported and the motel never had to close.
Likewise, no injuries were reported in Moorhead, where the roof collapsed at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church the same day. No one was inside the building since services had been canceled due to the weather, but ordinarily, the church would have been filled with parishioners taking part in mass, a pancake breakfast, and youth meetings.
All the snow has folks like Evers anxious for spring. “I want to mow lawn,” she told the TV reporter.
