Jennifer and Randy Trenary
an email message on May 25, 2004

My name is Jennifer (Burns) Trenary. The farm that we live on was hit by the tornado that went through Rolfe and Bradgate.  We live 1 mile east and 3/4 mile south of town.  Most people know this as the Kennedy farm.  Richard Roller is our landlord.  Mike and Joni Behrendsen farm here and have some of their machinery in our buildings. 

I took many, many pictures Saturday and Sunday after the tornado and I have them on a photo website. Our house suffered only very minor damages and is completely liveable.  My husband, Randy, and I were home with our kids at the time of the tornado.  I was in the basement with Shelby (8) and Spencer (4) and Randy stood in our back doorway and watched the silo, old hog building, grain bins and machine shed go with the storm.
Editor's note: Randy is a 1989 graduate of Rolfe. Jennifer grew up in the Rolfe area and graduated from the Pocahontas Area Community High School in 1993. We hope Jennifer will send us more about her experiences with and impressions of the tornado. Thanks Jennifer.
