What is tomato blight and how do you prevent it?

I've heard that tomato blight can take out a whole season of tomato crops if it strikes. What exactly is it, how do you know if your tomato has it, and how do you prevent it?

You'll know blight when you see it. The leaves get a discoloration, it looks ugly. Blight can be caused by too much rain. Sometimes there just is no way to prevent it, but you can take precautions to reduce the risk of the plants getting blight again the next year.
Do not ever, ever throw tomato plants that had blight on a compost pile. Get rid of them, as far away from the garden as possible and don't plant tomatoes in the same spot for 3 years after you've dealt with blight.
