    Must be God/Goddess is angry with the gays again and still has poor aim....all those Bible Belt areas get hit "by mistake" again? Or does it just suck to be in the tornado belt? Or is Goddess mad at the hate in those places? Hmmmmm.

    Ha !!! If you think the southern fundi's god is damn mad now over the gays in the south, you better plan on a long trip to the Netherlands when Obama's team and congress gets rid of DOMA. Tornados will look mild compared to whats coming.

    There'll be fire and brimstone for sure !!!

    Santorum will be heading up the announcement on the tribulation brought down on the USA over the gays, he'll round them up to be sent to GITMO under Obama's new laws of indefinate detention for troublemakers. Once he's done that, Santorum can lead America back to god and that will end the tornados as well as postponing the tribulation. Praise the Fundi's god !!!!! FOLLOW SANTORUM and PRAY THAT THE RIGHTIES SAVE THE COUNTRY FROM THE GAYS !! LOL

    Lets clear up the air, the unusually early tornadoes have hit only the southern part of the US and the southernmost part of the Midwest. Tornadoes did not blast apart the entire US like the stupid news media has everyone believing. As for the wrath of God, it is anger and disgust at all those evangelical lunatics with their hatred and hypocrisy.

    Hmm...perhaps the intense updrafts caused by the hot air from the religious spouting of hot head bible thumpers. icon_idea.gif

    That system roared through my neck of Western North Carolina last night. Hardly slept a moment thanks to the INCREDIBLE electrical display and roaring winds... There were even a series of Tornado Watch alerts on NOAA for my mountainous area!
    oh, and I read it as "tomatoes" as well...

    That could also explain the unseasonably warm winter they had this year. icon_lol.gif

    Just as New Orleans was building in known flood plains the Midwest and South have been building in known tornado corridors. So it's a no brainer as to why there is more incidence of damage.

    Maybe not so benign. I've seen computer projections of the impact of global warming and climate change for years now. And they all predict that the transition period to the new climate will produce conditions ripe for violent weather patterns.

    And so while what you say is true so far as it goes, take it the full step, and in looking for root causes the culprit is global warming.

    My partner & I get very upset when we see all the tornado destruction. I lived for years in tornado areas, survived a few, and he's been through bad hurricanes. Now we live together in Florida and like others always wonder if a hurricane will wipe us off the map. And please, no snarky comments about my heading a Hurricane Committee that benefits hundreds of residents here.

    But I do wonder about these poor survivors interviewed on TV, who invariably say that "the Lord" saved their lives. Well, if they believe that Jesus personally intervened on their behalf, why didn't he prevent their house from blowing away? Why did he drop a tornado on them in the first place? Don't they blame Jesus for that, too?

    Because if the Lord can intervene in human affairs to do the one, didn't he cause the other? And why?

    Plus the fundamentalists tell us that disasters like Hurricane Katrina were indeed deliberately sent by God as a Divine punishment, like a Biblical plague, invariably because of gays. So I guess I'm kinda confused here. icon_question.gif

    I wonder how many fundie christians are going to admit that these are the judgments of God coming down because they aren't willing to accept gay marriage!

    I won't name the stupid fanatic guy in the middle east, but at one time when they were having earthquakes, he told his nation that it is women who are showing their breasts, and if that continues they will have more earthquakes. icon_lol.gif

    This year's weather patterns are very different than previous years. The weather goes in cycles and this year its just warmers than average. I wonder if the La Nina effect is helping it along. I also wonder this is a sign of a very storm active summer to come.

    I sure hope not. Last year was pretty quiet in southeast Texas with the drought, and it was a pretty calm hurricane season. We definitely need the rain this year, but I hope to never have to experience a hurricane again. I'll never forget the weeks during Allison and Ike.

    Why are there so many snowstorms? Heatwaves? floods? etc?

    You mess with the climate and the earth, climate and earth messes with you... plain and simple

    And if you think earth and climate have nothing to do with "what we do"

    An example.. why is Haiti always more of a disaster zone than Dominican Republic?


    Haiti is on the left, Dominican Republic on the right:

    Yes, who could forget this "call to action" from the head of the Wilton Manors Hurricane Committee:

    FLORIDIANS!!! Watch The News, Likely We'll Be Hit By Irene, A Probable Hurricane Now Projected Cat 2 (Edit)

    Of course, the alarm sounded by "Colonel" Deco was a false one, having been given almost a full week before any possible chance of the storm bearing down on South Florida. Yet the "Colonel" insisted on going the hysteria route by choosing the words "Likely We'll Be Hit By Irene."

    You never let go of something in your delusions, do you? But then I guess that's the definition of a delusion.

    I was merely quoting the National Weather Service, and posted their official projection maps here for all to see. I invented nothing, exaggerated nothing. We were dead in the middle of their storm path until about 5 days before the storm was to get here, and then not fully out of danger until about 2 days before.

    Unlike private home owners, getting a condo prepared with hundreds of residents takes a lot of time. Especially with many elderly & disabled residents for whom special evacuation transportation must be arranged. And clearing the outdoor patios of furniture left by seasonal residents, who aren't supposed to have anything outside that could become a flying object, but who depart a week earlier anyway and simply don't comply.

    So we've gotta figure out which unit has to be entered, get a spare key they're supposed to keep on file, and bring their stuff inside. That alone takes a couple of days. Also to lower the outdoor pool level, secure the roof access hatches, and dozens of other tasks.

    It would be impossible to do all that in 2 days, it takes about 5. Plus the Hurricane Committee members themselves might wish to evacuate at least a day or 2 before the hurricane hits, because of the traffic jams.

    But typical of your lack of knowledge of year-round south Florida living. And your obsession with using your ignorance to bash me on any flimsy topic you think you can. Well, sorry, and expect to see me alerting other south Florida residents to potential hurricane threats this upcoming season.
