Minding my own business Feb. 28 at work in the early afternoon, focusing on finishing a story, I start to hear murmurs about potential tornado warnings southwest of our Orland Park office.

Little by little, I notice people from the editorial side of the office leaving earlier than usual. I look across at the sales side, located in the other half of the office, and everyone’s gone; the lights are off right at 5:30 p.m., which I’ve never seen before.
