What is up with this crazy weather?

There were 35 tornadoes last night in the Midwest and Southeast. Thirty five! In one evening! In November!

From the AP:

Meteorologists said a cold front moving rapidly east collided with warm, unstable air from the south on Tuesday to produce the thunderstorms that stretched from the Gulf of Mexico to the Great Lakes, spawning funnel clouds and tornadoes in parts of Missouri, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Tennessee.

The National Weather Service's Storm Prediction Center had preliminary reports of at least 35 tornadoes in the five states, spokeswoman Peggy Stogsdill said Wednesday at the center in Norman, Okla.

It was the third outbreak of twisters this month. One tornado on Nov. 6 killed 23 people in southern Indiana, and nine tornadoes struck Iowa on Saturday, killing one woman.


I was putting gas in the car yesterday when that front blew into Victoria. It was surreal. One moment it was hot and muggy and then within seconds cold gusts of air were blowing in. Like the A/C had just kicked in.

Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, oh my. Yes my friends, the times are changing all right. We better get ready for the wild ride we are in for.
