Andy's Angles: Another View

This photo has appeared here before, but it's worth another look.  It's the steeple of St. John the Baptist Church in Throop.  I took it in the summer of 2013, with my old flip camera phone, just minutes after a lightning strike.

I was on my home from the dentist when I saw the commotion and looked up.  The church was closed by the diocese, so the solution was simply to remove the steeple.  There was no sense in rebuilding it.

Now, the entire building is gone.
