No one can predict the terror of a storm of nature. I smile every time I think of a terrible tornado that hit the edge of Charlotte years ago. It was strong enough to move a huge crane 3 feet and it was set in thirty feet of concrete. a city councilman in the wisdom of a politician at the next council meeting, proposed to add to the building codes: buildings built from hence forth WILL BE TORNADO PROOF!
One builder agreed with his assessment with one caveat, that from hence forth all commercial buildings be built underground.
I read here on the internet during the time Irene was passing NC, a gentleman (?) who was stating Irene was the result of Climate change. So? was all the hurricanes back as far as time is recorded the result of something else?
I do appreciate ministers of the gospel, but when they start claiming storms, earth quakes, etc. are caused by the SINS of that area it bothers my logic. In reference to that , I guess God has completely given up on SIN CITY, out in Nevada. I did hear one preacher say God has done this in the Old Testament, I wanted to say, The Flood okay, but brother fire from heaven ain’t a natural disaster! That is when someone really makes God mad.
Oh, I am not doubting God could punish areas, if He so desired. My belief is that God has set this earth into motion, and the natural things that can happen due to nature’s combinations or situations WILL HAPPEN, whether we like it or not.
Our weather report here has been very good. Our winds did not exceed 20 mph, and we got no rain. We did see a large convoy of electrical crane and bucket trucks headed toward the coast to help restore power to the areas hardest hit.
Thanks for reading this stuff,

This 1956 Pontiac was a beauty! It would do some moving also. How about that continental Kit?
