WHEATLAND, Wyo. -- Al Love will probably never look at his bathtub the same way again.
As Thursday's quarter-mile-wide tornado bore down on his house southwest of Wheatland, he stepped into the bathroom, figuring it was the safest place.
He closed the door as the tornado ripped away his roof, leaving nothing but a portion protecting the bathroom.
He hid in his bathtub as the twister raged past.
Love suffered some cuts, but was treated and released from the Platte County Memorial Hospital in Wheatland on Thursday.
This morning he joined a few co-workers and other volunteers at his home, located amidst the tornado's swath of destruction along Olson Road southwest of Wheatland.
His kitchen stood open to the morning sun, his view through his now blown-out back wall a field of debris.
On his kitchen table, somehow still intact despite the twister's power, stood a statue of Jesus, a candle, some flowers and a bottle of vegetable oil.
Hanging from a bathroom rafter hung a tie he wore to church last Sunday.
"Do you want me to bring a trailer?" asked one woman volunteer.
"There's not much left," he told her.
Love still has something around which to rebuild.
