    Do not forget the Palm Sunday Tornado.

    On Palm Sunday, April 11, 1965, Indiana was one of six Midwest states to be raked by deadly tornadoes. In all, 47 tornadoes killed 271 people and injured over 1,500. This was the third deadliest tornado outbreak in U.S. history and the deadliest of all Indiana outbreaks.

    In Indiana, 137 people were killed and over 1,200 injured by ten tornadoes during the late afternoon and evening hours that day.

    One of the most violent tornadoes occurred at Midway Trailer Court near Goshen. A second tornado struck minutes later near Goshen at Rainbow Lake. Another tornado formed just south of South Bend and tracked to just south of Elkhart. This tornado killed 45 in the town of Dunlap and 33 of those killed were at a trailer park. Other Northern Indiana locations hit by tornadoes included Lapaz, Koontz Lake, Wyatt, Wakarusa and Wanatah….

    A F4 or F5 tornado hitting a major city is a huge disaster. Fortunately does not happen very often.

    Easter Bunny greetings from 1924:

    …the year that Hubble announced that the then commonly visible Milky Way was our own galaxy, and Einstein announced the Bose-Einstein condensate in which a whole beaker of liquid became a single quantum object, when de Broglie announced the astounding wave instead of particle model of atoms, and when Bard created television that dumbed down all future generations.

    In the past Easter may have meant bad times but this Easter Sunday is a day for rejoicing! As well as the inspirational Christian message, there is this on Paul Homewood blog.

    Hallelujah! One newspaper editor has the bravery to say it like it is!
