After our area was hit with a series of tornadoes and macroburts on May 15, 2018, most residents are still shell-shocked when it comes to weather. I'll be honest, I had never even heard of a "macroburst" before that day. Since that day, I pay attention to the weather forecast a heck of a lot more than I used to.
