Calm amid the storm

Photo by Jerry Blanton, special to The Message

Jerry Blanton provided The Message with this photo of the statues of Mary and Joseph in the yard of his and wife Melanie’s home near Corpus Christi Parish on Evansville’s west side. Although the March 3 storm brought down trees like the one shown in the Blanton’s yard, power lines and poles across the area – and snatched the roof off St. Joseph Church just a few miles to the north – the statues of Mary and Joseph suffered no damage.
