We missed this Event — Heavens — an apt word under the circumstances.
Awhile back, the steeple of the Onley Baptist Church was removed. The church is located “downtown” at the intersection of the town’s two main roads: Main St and Coastal Blvd. It’s nearly in the “center” of town IF we had a town center, which sadly we do not now, but back in the day . . . that’s another story.
Anyway, the old steeple was taken down after being damaged during a storm and deemed unsteady.
AFTER its removal, a new fiberglass steeple was delivered and put on the ground near the church. BUT, a sudden windstorm the next week caused it to topple over and crack. AFTER repairs, it sat for well over a month while waiting for a crane to lift it in place.
THEN, there it was UP and we missed seeing it happen, but it’s where it should be now.
