Tornado Alley

Normally the environmental disasters we face around here are hurricanes. We've had quite a few of them in the last 10-15 years. Occasionally we have wildfires, every now and then a blizzard (up to 2 inches of snow), a flood is not that rare. But Saturday, 16 April, we had 62 tornadoes rip through eastern North Carolina. We just don't do that.

A few years ago, I built a sunroom on a house that belonged to some friends. Today, the only part of their house with a roof on it is that sunroom. After seeing their house today, I can't even gloat over my construction being so good that a tornado can't tear it up. I am so amazed that they all came out alive. Mother Nature is awesome.


  1. I'm glad that you and yours managed to survive.

    Maybe, there is a silver lining among all the misery. Hopefully you'll get some work out of it.

  2. Stay safe 10th - I remember the hurricanes from three tours in North Carolina but the tornadoes not so much - at least not 62 at once. Wow

  3. It's at least heartening that we have a Federal Government which can step in and help these people get their lives back.

  4. I don't want to argue with you on this subject, but as usual, you misunderstand the "help" the Federal government provides. Volunteers and donors provide the real help, and rarely get fooled by non-victims the way the feds do. Remember how much money Americans donated to tsunami relief? The generous people of this country will give their time and treasure to help, even though the government has already taken money from us to "help."
