• Please note this new thread in the Announcements forum regarding updated management of the site. Jeff Duda has agreed to assume ownership and lead management responsibilities during what is anticipated to be a 3-12-month interim period while we perform some updates to the site, including changing the hosting. The staff will do their best to provide timely and transparent updates throughout this transition period.

  • A website update occured last week that rendered some of the page display styles obsolete. If you have logged onto the site and are experiencing a strange or messy appearance, it is likely due to this factor. An inadvertent mistake in the meantime likely made this issue worse. It has hopefully now been fixed. See this thread for details on the fix. --Jeff

2003-08-21 Michigan Tornado

My first recorded tornado... And the first tornado ever for my daughters (scroll ahead to about the 2 minute mark for "Things dads should not say with his young children in the back seat" :)
Rob, I remember hearing about this as it happened right after we left back for Tennessee where we were living at the time, and heard you'd given a live on-air report but didn't know about this video. o_O Just before we came back up here, that May (the 4th) we had an EF4 hit Jackson where we were living which pretty much lifted right before the storm came through our area.
