It’s a Festivus miracle!

The previous Christmas-time tornado record was 12. We beat that by quite a bit this year:

ABC News — Severe Christmas day weather tore across the deep South, spinning off 34 possible tornadoes and killing at least three people in its path, while extreme weather is forecast throughout today for parts of the East Coast.The storm first pounded Texas, then touched down in Louisiana and blasted through homes in Mississippi. In Mobile, Ala., a wide funnel cloud was barreled across the city as lightning flashed inside like giant Christmas ornaments.

That only three people died is already being hailed as a miracle. You’d think a real miracle might be less deadly, but hey, you know how this goes.
