Sunday in Review

After a long weather discussion about the promising setup for severe weather this week, the SWIFT group visited the memorials for the catastrophic EF-5 tornado that ripped through Joplin, MO in 2011. The cross from St. Mary's Church, one of the only structures left standing in the aftermath of the tornado, and Cunningham Park, considered the heart of the EF-5 damage, featured numerous tributes to the victims of the storm. After a quick drive to Tulsa, OK, we ran through the trails of Turkey Mountain, treated to the view of the Arkansas River as we ran. We ate dinner at a great burrito joint in Owasso, OK and ended the night by finalizing our lesson plans for the middle school students we get to interact with tomorrow. And not to worry, we all made sure to call our mothers! (Happy Mothers' Day, Moms!)
