Mary Reinert of Holly, Colorado, knows what it means to have to rebuild your life in the wake of a tornado. She survived when a twister struck the southeast Colorado community of 900 in March 2007. It killed two people and destroyed 45 homes, including Reinert’s. She told CPR's Ryan Warner about enduring a two-year process of rebuilding.
