Decapitated windmill

Our local landmark the Twiskemolen (Twiske windmill) was devastated the other day when a small tornado (yes, really) whipped through the area and ripped off its blades. I took a walk yesterday to see it for myself.

People came from far and wide (ish) to take a look
I wasn’t the only one
Twiskemolen without its blades

For reference, here’s what it looked like on 10th May 2015, when kids from the local schools had painted special decorative sails for the windmill’s anniversary celebrations:

I hope it can be repaired.
