Today marks the one-year anniversary of a tornado that struck Windsor, in northern Colorado, taking one life and doing an estimated $193 million in damages, which made it the costliest twister in state history. The video above shows why; the massive storm sat on top of the community for a long, long time, stirring deadly winds and spewing hail the size of baseballs. This may not be the nicest spring afternoon, but it's infinitely more pleasant than last May 22.
