Something my colleagues don’t know about me…

I’ve worked as a disaster coordinator and been involved with all facets of disasters since I survived my first tornado in 1957. I survived a second tornado as a teenager in Illinois. Since moving to Indiana in 1971 I’ve survived two more tornadoes. During each of these a building was destroyed across the street from where I took shelter.
