Buskman's Home Town 44 Years Ago Today 4/3/1974

...And I was there. My family and I lived in "Old Arrowhead", the neighborhood most devastated, at that time...

Wow, Looks like it got a tad windy.

"The tornado that struck Xenia was just one of at least 148 tornados that occurred in the South and Midwest in a twenty-four period. This was the worst outbreak of tornados recorded in the twentieth century."

I can't believe it was that long ago,I would've sworn it was maybe 10 years ago.

Add 8 more years, Tim, and you'll have the time frame of it's Little Brother ripping through...

Storm hits Xenia hard

Ironically, on yesterday's anniversary, an area within Xenia Twshp. was hit yet again by a much smaller one...minimal damage and no injuries...thankfully

Native Xenians are some of the toughest people I know... It's instinctive. They are also some of the most "Ready to Assist Those In Need" kind of folks you'll ever meet...

Xenia's official motto is: "Xenia, City of Hospitality"...fits pretty well.
