    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=if5cW--WVX8]2/29/2012 -- Tornado watch zones EXPANDED to Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee - YouTube[/ame]

    Australia flooding. Huge snowstorms and cold in Europe. And it 65 in St. Loius under a tornado watch. Just normal weather folks, nothing to see here, move along.

    Everybody has seen it before..........nobody cares anymore. A few years ago, it resonated to some degree but too much over-reach has left the people saying, "meh". To a vast majority of people, all this weather stuff is still well within the mean. Like I said last week..........if we see 4 straight weeks of 50 degrees in northern Alaska mid-winter next year, people will pay attention.

    2Mar12 More tornados in one day than normal in the whole month of March. 28 known dead at present.

    Australia experiancing more flooding, in some places exceeding anything since records have been kept.

    Starting to warm up in Europe, finally.

    Now officially the largest single outbreak of tornadoes in US history.

    Neighbor down the road had his windows broken out and holes punched thru his tin barn roof by hail.

    Point is, if this keeps up, and, unfortunetly, I think that it will, this will be the third year in a row in which we are seeing major infrastructure and agriculteral damage from a substancial increase over the norm in extreme weather events. How many years and how extreme does the damage have to become before the wingnuts admit that there is a problem that needs addressing?

    A day or so of unusual cold, then unusually warm, here for over a week. A two month drought, now it has rained 4 days straight. VERY unusual.

    How many tornadoes?

    Dumb fuck, we just exceeded the '74 outbreak. But keep your eyes shut, your ears tightly plugged. Be absolutely sure you don't observe reality. Folks like you cannot handle it.

    And I have seen snow in Tacoma in May. So what. It is starting to warm up in Europe and melting the snow that they have had.
