From this point forward my journal is going to be friends and private only. If you would like to read any of my usually boring or macabre entries please let me know. I don't promise to entertain or be very sociable, but I will try. I've met some wonderful peeps on/thru LJ so I am open-minded to openly sharing my thoughts & life, just going more cautiously now. Thanks!

With the number of tornado reports for the period Sat afternoon through Monday morning now approaching 100, it is worth pointing out that while this is certainly one of the greatest November outbreaks on record, tornado outbreaks during Autumn are far from a rarity. In fact, a second tornado-maxima occurs during the season.

As is the case during Spring, cold and drier air from the north begins clashing again with the warmer, moist air from the Gulf. Sometimes, as was the case this past weekend, a particularly strong jet stream also enhances thunderstorm activity during various times of the year. The current El Nino is being fingered out for a possible reason why the jet stream across the country was so powerful this past week. (Recall the hurricane force winds in California Thursday & Friday).

Currently there are roughly three dozen confirmed fatalities and many people are still missing and concern is rising that at least some of them may not be found alive. To illustrate, with clarion, the impact of this past weekend's explosion of nature's fury, consider that the oft-referred to super-outbreak of May 3, 1999, claimed forty-six lives.
