Indiana’s stormy weekend

Maybe it's a sign about time change but most likely it is just another windy stormy spring in Indiana. Friday night a tornado did significant damage to Flat Rock Indiana, a small town near my church. The historic local Methodist church looks like it is a total loss, I haven't heard anything official yet. Very heart breaking for their small congregation. Please keep these good folks in your thoughts. (Click on the picture of the church to see a larger version of the image.)

Last night a tornado destroyed a couple of houses, and did lots of damage to others in Seymour Indiana, which is in the county south of us. We had significant winds here and lots of rain. Interestingly we lost our satellite internet and TV connects for about a hour...clouds were too thick. But our satellite radio connection worked the entire time.

Also last night straightline winds or a tornado did some serious damage in Indianapolis, check out the story Regions Bank Building Damage Forces Businesses to Relocate with pictures. Not the states best face to show our Final Four visitors. I'm just glad I didn't have to go to the IUPUI campus today, not only was the city going to be a zoo with all the visitors now a significant number of downtown streets are closed so that pieces of the building don't fall on people.

Oh dear, maybe on second thought it is a time change issue.
