Their house and barns were damaged in the storm, but today their property looks a lot different.But even though their ordeal is over, Jimmy Doughty said he remembers it like it was yesterday.“It was nearly an hour before I got home, and boy was it a shock,” Doughty said. “It didn’t look like it did when I left. It blew the backside of the house. It blew the windows out in the bedroom and part of the bathroom.
