Just wait until the weekend of the 27th. With Panoply happening in Huntsville that weekend, it's almost a given to have bad weather.

Reading through the 4/27/11 archive, and I still have that sick feeling in my stomach and tears in my eyes even though the event has long passed. What a horrible event that was, and I really hope I never have to go through another day like it again. =(

HEY GUESS WHAT, I don't know if it's been mentioned here yet, or how far along the project is, but after years of relative silence, Tom Grazulis is at is again with an update to Significant Tornadoes!

I can imagine it will be extremely expensive, but no doubt indispensable in a diehard severe weather nerd's library, should the project finish successfully.

For those who lived through the 4/27/2011 tornadoes, time has been measured by it since. You have life before the tornadoes and life after. It was a period that forever shaped the state of Alabama. That day would bring us untold deaths only to reveal an immeasurable amount of strength and humanity. While it is great to look ahead, reflection of the lives lost and progress made is critical. We must never forget.

I've always found it fascinating how people measure time by tragedy. Having lived through Katrina, is it very much the same...you have life before and after. It is so etched into people's minds, fearfully watching the news reports of winds ripping apart buildings, water overtopping and breaching levees, and the thousands of water rescues by helicopter. Both of these are that kind of event where you can recall everything about where you were, what you were doing, and who you were with. No one in their wildest dreams could've imagined what was going to transpire on both 8/29/2005 or 4/27/2011. It was a test of faith. And when you lose everything, thank God for him and your family/friends because that is all you have.

Finally a nice weekend for events happening this weekend across the South, including Panoply, The National Cornbread Festival, Talledega and Jazz Fest.

It's going to hit 87 here next Thursday. I'm finally going to feel human again.

Today is the 65th anniversary of the Worcester, Massachusetts tornado. How did such a violent tornado touch down in New England?

It was the same storm system that produced the Flint, MI F5 the day before (one of the most impressive tornadoes of the modern era imo).

We probably shouldn't have put so much fertilizer on our lawn...it's green, lush and growing, growing and more growing!!

So while looking over at the Alabama Weather blog, I noticed this on James Spann's Twitter feed:

Everytime I read through the 4/27 thread I shudder. It is amazing how vivid that day was seven years ago.
