🙁 This is heartbreaking...so much destruction
of late. Yes, Bionic...a plea to Mother Earth is needed,
or just a sense of peace within ourselves and hope it
radiates outward. I found this song yesterday and have been
listening a lot. Its not a prayer but it is peaceful.

You're not too far from me my " Mensa " Friend. Laugh Surely no laughing matter, just terrible destruction these things are capable of, most people have no idea of their power, albeit fickle at times.

The very cold winter is to blame, lots of cold air still at higher elevations of the atmosphere that the jet taps into. Usually T, Storms rain themselves out and quell the difference between the warmer and colder elements of super cell storms. Not this season, as evidenced by long lived f-4's.

Anyway hope you're safe and have the presence of mind to have what I call a GO BAG. Ours is a three day pack, actually an assault pack, Led's water, clothes, snack energy food, a little cash, benchmade knife, med kit, wipes, matches--and of course a trusty pea shooter "

be well.

This is really beginning to piss me off to know end. The damn media exploiting these events, as well as companies trying to leverage the events for profit, advertising...the works.

LISTEN UP....................These people are in need, some scared to death, some injured severely, many are simply dead. Many have no home due to the twister, or a place to earn a living due to the twister, or a place to buy basic needs gear/food/water/ice..............and you got news crews asking for photos and video...........

Get real People................put on a pair of boots and gloves and do something for someone in need. You ( and you know who you are ) should be ashamed.

And stop the " WE TOLD YOU SO " Global warming bullshit ----------------these are normal events and believe it or not, they do happen every single season..............so stop the blatant fear mongering and the bimbo news spots. Have some decency for once.

Cole
