Summer 2012 13
he morning of Friday, March 2, 2012, started out
just like any other day in Southern Indiana – except
for the storm warnings.
Forecasters were predicting that the afternoon
would be filled with strong winds, including
possible tornados. Some were taking it seriously, as the
forecasters were emphatic about the danger, but many
were thinking that the harried predictions might be
getting a little blown out of proportion.
