Authorities say an apparent tornado demolished a church as a large system of storms threatened several states across the South and Midwest.
She got to describing the movie "Twister" (the special-effects laden tornado movie from 1996), and I said I'd never seen it. To lighten the mood, I said "I've seen 'The Wizard of Oz.'"
