45 years ago...

The Oak Lawn (among others) tornado was 45 years ago today.  33 people died just from the Oak Lawn tornado; 58 died in total.

I had just turned 4.  I don't have many vivid memories from that age, but I do remember being in the basement and all the commotion afterward, as we lived just north of Oak Lawn, near Midway Airport.

Amazing the things that stay in your memory.
