Businesses Not Here Anymore
This first one was a chemical plant, that’s all I know, (remember). I do remember almost all the teenage boys would work there at times. It was torn down and fenced off, and to this day, this is it.
This one was the DDT plant, yep,, a block up the street where we all grew up, and just off a creek, between us. Somewhere along the way, someone decided it was bad stuff, took it all away, and dug up the ground and loaded it into barrels, then sealed them. Now you can’t get any good pesticide.
This was the talc plant, on the bank of the river. Not sure why it was torn down, don’t think it was bad. We used it on Halloween to load little brown sacks to throw. They exploded when they hit, and that stuff was like flour.
See, I had a healthy childhood,,,,oh, and that talc plant was about 3 blocks from us. The chemical plant was N across the street from the granite place.
When I woke up this morning about 7, I realized that the wind was that BAD front, just arriving, so I shut 2 windows I had left open. Heard someone on the scanner say the temp had dropped 14 degrees instantly. And by the time I got up 10 minutes later, turned heat on! Yall will see….
I’ll try to do better with pics, but,,, no promises,,,lol.
Yall tc, and
