Today marks the 17th anniversary of the F-3 tornado that tore through Owensboro, Kentucky on January 3rd, 2000.  Among the houses that were basically leveled that day was my friend Leisa's.  Leisa's home, on McIntire Crossing, was one of many ravaged and destroyed that afternoon.  And, while her house was eventually rebuilt, Leisa still carries with her the memories of that day . . . and photos that capture the absolute and undeniable and random fury of Mother Nature.  This is her story.
