Sailer: An encounter with the fury of nature

Email

The day, July 8, 2009, started out warm and muggy. My son, Mark, and 8-year-old grandson, Alex, were visiting from California, so we decided to go fishing at Lake Tschida.

We caught a few fish and were reluctant to leave, even though the forecast called for a tornado watch. I had never witnessed a tornado, so I wasn’t too concerned. My husband kept pushing, though. “Let’s get going,” he kept saying.
