Joplin 4 and 1/2 Months Post-Tornado

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

Things are really starting to improve in Joplin. I drive down 20th St. in Duquesne once a week picking ds up from East Middle School. There are a few houses and the damaged East Middle School that haven't been demolished yet, but everything else is being built or repaired. Dd's bff's house may even be fixed by the end of this month (they thought it might not be until Dec.).

Wendy's opened up yesterday on Rangeline. I had heard they were opening, but when we got there, there was still construction going on. Luckily, they really were open and we got to enjoy some Wendy's. I also saw that Aldi's is opening Oct. 22. DH says Macadoodles (a high end liquor store) is opening later this month. Walmart should be ready in Nov. It's coming back, slowly but surely.
