SOUTHBRIDGE — Like many people, Dan Butler would really like to forget June 1, 2011, since the tornado that day pretty much ran over his house.

But forgetting is highly unlikely to happen, so he's memorializing it forever in print.

Titled "It's Here," Butler's glossy magazine-style book is a review of images as and after the storm hit, most of them by him or his girlfriend Kristin Fournier, with maps and screen-saves of those angry red, hooked representations of the clouds the TV stations broadcast as the storm cells barreled down on us from the west.
