Glider Pilot Gets Up Close and Personal with Landspout Tornado

#TheGoodStuff What is Economic Development?

Seems like every day I look at social media, I discover that it’s some kind of special day. National apple pie day or national left handed appreciation day, I have no idea who comes up with all of that and I sure don’t seem to be able to keep track of it.
