BRIMFIELD — Mother Nature has not been kind to One Stop Towing owner Dave Bell over the last year.

Five buildings and 10 tow trucks on his 86 Holland Road property were destroyed by the June 1 tornado. And that was only the beginning of a long train of weather-related incidents that provided one challenge after another.

The earthquake caused a crack to form in Bell's trailer on the property, the new fences in his impound yard were destroyed by the torrential downpours in the weeks following Hurricane Irene, his Holland home was dealt $30,000 in damages by the October snowstorm, and most recently, seven old boats stored on his property — as well as five acres on its east side — were consumed by the brush fire last Wednesday, April 4.
