Storm Shelter, January 1, 2018

Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, December 22, 2017
This pretty community storm shelter is designed to keep 40 people safe during severe storms. The front faces the east; the tree is painted on the north wall. I do not know who drew the patterns, but the actual painting was done by the Keep Tupelo Beautiful group of folks.

This happy sun is on the south wall. This is a total flight of fancy - no mountains near Tupelo!
Small storm shelters are in various neighborhoods, and there are larger shelters at the schools.

I am not sure what the west wall mural portrays. It looks like a huge Easter egg to me!

Happy New Year!

  2. Hello, pretty murals, they look colorful and happy looking. Have a great new day, new week and a happy New Year!

  3. I believe it's the sun on the horizon - or an Easter egg like u said!

  4. I love these gorgeous murals! Such a happy look to a storm shelter when people are facing severe wet and cold! I wish all towns had such buildings!

  5. The colorful drawings on the walls make it a little nicer to have to go to a storm shelter:) Wishing you a very happy New Year!

  6. What great way to decorate a storm shelter...they did a great job with the painting.

  7. Now that's something we never see here.

  8. I suspect it would be rather crowded in there - safe but crowded. But it looks good on the outside.

  9. Many thanks for your sharing this lovely and bright storm shelter with All Seasons! Have a happy and relaxed week!

  10. Maybe the easter egg is the sun. I like the idea of warm, bright murals on a storm shelter. Cheers to you!

  11. I love murals, especially on a building that otherwise would not be too attractive! Happy New Year!

  12. I'm thinking the west wall has a setting sun. Or an egg yolk. Never heard of a community storm shelter before. Learned something new. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

  13. It's nice to know that it's there in case you need it. I love the paintings on it.

  14. It's pretty! I've heard of these in trailer parks.
