The Winter That "Roared"

Here it is March 7, and 2007 has already seen nine tornadoes rated F3 (or EF3, with the transition to the new, improved "Enhanced Fujita Scale" on February 1) and one rated EF4. More than 40 people have been killed by these tornadoes. And we thought 2006 got off to a busy start! Of course, we all know what happened then.
