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.

    Is this an example of Jesus punishing the states that went for Romney?

    This is what happens when you throw god out of schools, obviously!

    No, no, it’s because Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana are far too tolerant of gays and other heterodox forms of sexuality.

  4. 4

    All states with anti-gay marriage statutes…

    Just sayin’

  5. 5

    Evidence that God does not go where he isn’t wanted. He has to throw his tantrum somewhere, though.

    Thunderstorms and tornadoes and even dust devils and water spouts are a joy to behold. They are just rare enough, and just ephemeral enough that when one gets to clap eyes on them it is a memory that will last a lifetime. That’s how much Dog loves us. We should stand in awe and be thankful. And, ahh, for some reason that escapes me just now (though I’m sure I’ll remember it in just a minute) we should worship. It. I guess.
