Photos: Debris litters the green, green grass of home

On the horizon, a barn and farmhouse torn asunder by a tornado form a background to a placid field scattered with their debris. Nearly a football field away from its longtime home, a heavy bunk feeder from the barnyard was launched there on May 22. The storm took with it the nails, wooden planks, and tin pieces of roof from the farmhouse and barns on either side of Bozenkill Road, leaving one scrap on top of the feeder.

In the clear afternoon light, Steve Guernsey began cleaning the mess around his lowing cattle about an hour after he waited out the torrent in his hayloft.

The tornado disappeared back into the atmosphere shortly after hitting Bozenkill Road, in the northwest corner of Albany County. It left a seven-mile path, starting north of Delanson, with its most pervasive evidence in uprooted trees and hail the size of marbles and golf balls that littered the road with leaves and branches.
