As we come up on the 3rd anniversary of starting the Rice & Spice dinner series, I look back and remember why it all started.

First Ever Recorded Inland Hurricane. On May 8th, 2009, Carbondale, IL gets hit by a 20-minute, 40-mile wide inland hurricane which had an average wind speed of 85 mph with gusts at ground level of 106 mph and 124 at treetop level. A tree fell on our car while we were in it. This event is now being called a derecho (Spanish for straight) due to the fact that nobody had hurricane insurance, so the Governor came and emphasized that it was a derecho, NOT a hurricane.
