Vaughn Nordhausen, manager ... [cached]

Vaughn Nordhausen, manager of Overson Lumber in St. James, was checking out cracked rafter supports in the building on Sunday afternoon, December 27, as a couple other men were raking about five feet of snow off the roof.

Nordhausen realized it was time to get out when he noticed other supports were cracked - and when the creaking and crumbling noises began.
Nordhausen made it out, safe and sound - but only by a couple of feet.

"We kept hearing noises, I think that was kind of the beginning of the end," says Overson's manager, Vaughn Nordhausen. He knew there was trouble when drifts were discovered from the Christmas snowstorm five to six feet deep on top of a large lumber storage shed.

Nordhausen went inside the shed to investigate.
"I was probably about right here by that molding rack," he says pointing to a spot about 30 feet inside the shed, "when I looked over halfway down and noticed two more had snapped."
Broken trusses, that's what Nordhausen had spotted -- the support structure holding up the roof. "It started to rumble at that point I knew it was coming down."
Nordhausen has never been know around the lumberyard as a sprinter, but as the building caved in, "I could have beat, what's his name? (Usain) Bolt, the Olympian."
Nordhausen just cleared the door as the roof collapsed with enough updraft to lift his heavy winter coat.
Nordhausen says the lost contents of the lumber shed alone will run "into the six figures. He estimates the building itself is worth a similar amount. Both are insured.
Nordhausen likes to think of himself as a religious person. "I was before and I probably will be more now," he said without a hint of laughter.
Nordhausen is thanking heaven, while cleaning up one heck of a mess.
