Today is the 45th anniversary of the 1967 Lake Zurich tornado.


The response to the original blog post (one year ago) has been good, and it has been gratifying to hear from former neighbors who also lived through the event. 

There is nothing so humbling as witnessing the utter destruction from one of the most devastating forces of nature.
