Storms rip across Mecklenburg, Cabarrus, Stanly counties | CharlotteObserver.com & The Charlotte Observer Newspaper

The Reedy Creek area is about 1.5 miles from our home. Watching our local news they have shown that several of the homes had damage, siding off and parts of roofs ripped off. We did loose power for awhile but have no damage in our area at all, just lots of rain.


This is the woods in back of the house. As you can see the run off water is a bit high right now, but not as bad as it was about 2 hours ago. It will probably all be gone by tomorrow morning. This is rather typical after a good rainstorm.

Court Street, Jacksonville, NC

Where did they all go? The jewelry store? The bars? The restaurants? The clothing stores? But, as I stopped to walk and take a couple of pictures I could still hear the sounds, see the sights, and smell the food from my memories of Court Street. So many changes in the past 46 years... 

And of course, don't forget Old Bridge Street

Stonewall Jackson Training School

Welcome to the Stonewall Jackson Training School located just outside Concord, NC. These here are the original buildings that were built back in 1909. Of course there is a much newer facility located behind all these buildings now. It was the first juvenile home in the state of North Carolina. I have to sit here and wonder what kind of boys were sent here. How were they treated here? Did they go on and lead productive lives from here? 

The Cannon House

One of the "cottages", as they were called, where the boys were put up. 

Another one of the "cottages".




The grounds around the school and cottages.












Concord Mills Mall

Finally back to the walking routine, I hope. On the cold and really hot days I can come here and walk in the mall. It's .8 miles per lap and if you walk all the entrance's it's 1 mile per lap. If the weather is good then I can go to the Fairfield Park over in Mint Hill and walk one of the two courses there.
