Windmill Destroyed By Wind!

It’s been a while since my last post, but I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and a great new start of 2015!

The last couple of days we didn’t had much of a winter here in Holland, but we had plenty of storms. Yesterday a windmill in our town even lost it’s sails!

The purpose of this particular windmill (build in 1565) went away when a neighborhood was created around it in 1965, but it remained as a monument and landmark for the area. The elderly owner of the windmill was all over the news yesterday because he was (naturally) devastated by what had happened. Two hours after the accident occurred I happened to be close by and decided to take a look and of course to take a few pictures.
