  1. I learned, unfortunately as a by–product of the devastation left by this week’s E4 tornado in Moore, a suburb south of Oklahoma City, that about 1000 tornadoes hit the United States every year.  

    With a 13 minute lead time there's not much you can do to protect yourself.  Just run for safety underground in, well, a storm cellar.


    Florida and Tornado Alley have a disproportionately high frequency of tornadoes. 

    The Gulf Coast has a relatively high frequency of tornadoes October through December.  Statistics say this “Dixie Alley” area, clocks more tornado deaths than Tornado Alley, due to the high number of, wait for it… 

    mobile homes. 


    At any time, one or more of these storm prone areas is in desperate need of long term relief, like victims of 
    North East Super FrankenStorm 

     They are still piecing back together literally shattered lives.
    I find it hard to believe that 67 members of the 
    House of Representatives 
    voted "no" to assisting people who were left powerless 
    and homeless by hurricane Sandy in November 2012. 

    Were these politicians really representing their constituents with that "NO" vote?

      Unbelievable! I saw program on TV that said that most of the representatives who voted "no" did so because all of the "pork barrel" legislations that were attached to the bills...BUT the program also stated that the benefits for disaster relief funding MORE than outweighed the items that they had opposed.

      I'm glad to see that NY and NJ representatives were not on that list. So sad to see that those representatives, once again, threw their constituents under the bus putting their own political careers ahead of humanity.

      Fabulous blog! ~S
