The folks at Big Ass Fans must be loving this picture right now. As we understand it, this is what’s left of a shoe factory after it was hit by a tornado that swept through the Sikeston, Missouri area earlier this year. If you look close, the fans are still there.

What does this mean?  Not a whole lot in the grand scheme of things.  In all honesty, no one can predict how tornadoes will behave or what, if anything, will come through undamaged. These fans had just as much chance as anything else that was strapped down in the building.

But on balance, if I were Big Ass Fans I’d have this picture blown up and hung in the corporate lobby.

Note: We’re told that all employees escaped safely.

  1. Look at the wiring chase/conduit it’s attached to. It’s bent.

    I bet that fan was spinning FAST.

    They should show that picture with the following caption to make more sales:

    “now this is what happens when you run an unsupported voltage through our fans…be warned boys and girls” =P

    Those are very popular fans in large facilities. I bought one at my former employer and they have them at my current employer. Everyone loves the name of the company when you are at a Fortune 50 company. The silly name lightens everything up.
