This Just In - Dairy Palace Avoids Being Killed By Tornado

Interstate 20 and Highway 19?!!!  Next to that Canton Chevron station seen on TV slightly squished and battered by yesterdays (tornado?) is a restaurant beloved by several Dallas chefs, the World Famous Dairy Palace.  My heart rate doubled as I pictured a drive to Canton, Van or Shreveport without a stop at this favorite family-run place (open 24/7, by the way).

I spoke with Carlos, an employee at the restaurant this morning, and he said while the building sustained a small amount of damage, they will resume operations as soon as the electricity is restored.  He is hoping by noon today.
All these folks are believed to be alive and well after
yesterdays weather event.  Perhaps saved by
the spirit of their hanging sign?
