Getting serious for once.

I think its fair to say that its because of the whole Cherryvale thing, but it looks like I will be keeping a closer eye on the US tornado season than I ever have before. And I have to say, having experienced it in that sense for the first time over the last couple of days, its a truly frightening thing.

It sounds crazy to say that Cherryvale got off lightly a couple of days ago, but compared to some places, they did. Somewhere about 100 miles north of there called Harveyville got it far worse, and sadly a number of people lost their lives. This morning I switch on the news, and hear about the terrible things that have been inflicted on Henryville, and Maryville, IN and seen the awful pictures of the total destruction wrought there.

I dont know all the details, but I’m told by the news people that last year was the worst tornado season known, and this year, its started earlier than normal, all scary and sad news to me. I dont know if its climate change, simply the luck (or non luck) of the weather, but you do have to wonder?

As I said, Cherryvale got off lightly, a number of windows broken by hailstones, and one barn lost its roof due to the high winds there. I wish that little town all the best for the whole tornado season, but at the same time, I want to wish the whole area the same. Tornados are going to happen, but hopefully no more fatalities, and no more destroyed towns. Probably a vain hope, but one I offer up a prayer for anyway.

Alright, the video, naturally I’m not putting up a film of any tornado doing damage. But equally, I couldnt not put up film of Tornados, so…

Cheating, I know it is, but at the same time… 😉
