Well, I was going to blame the great minds who think they can control and "own" the weather by 2025, but I heard this morning 64 people were killed in lightning strikes yesterday in India. India and Pakistan had massive dust storm along with that. 64 people in one day being electrocuted? I think God is unleashing some fury.
As for us, the fun begins tonight with torrential downpours, 60 mph winds and possible lightening. Is this the rebuttal to Easter, which is the anniversary of the crucifixion?
And some nutjob went into St. Patricks Cathedral in NYC with gasoline cans and a lighter, he wanted to recreate a Notre Dame type of thing. Some astute security and policemen put a stop to it. He told the cops that he was just trying to take a shortcut thru the church to get to Madison Avenue where his car was parked and that he was out of gas. The cop went with him to his car and found he had a full tank, so he kinda knew what the man was up to.
it's just so sick.....

This week Big Asteroid Exercise by NASA, FEMA and International Partners.
While headlines routinely report on "close shaves" and "near-misses" when near-Earth objects (NEOs) such as asteroids or comets pass relatively close to Earth, the real work of preparing for the possibility of a NEO impact with Earth goes on mostly out of the public eye.
For more than 20 years, NASA and its international partners have been scanning the skies for NEOs, which are asteroids and comets that orbit the Sun and come within 30 million miles (50 million kilometers) of Earth's orbit. International groups, such as NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO), the European Space Agency's Space Situational Awareness-NEO Segment and the International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN) have made better communication of the hazards posed by NEOs a top priority.
In the spirit of better communication, next week at the 2019 Planetary Defense Conference, NASA's PDCO and other U.S. agencies and space science institutions, along with international partners, will participate in a "tabletop exercise" that will play out a realistic - but fictional - scenario for an asteroid on an impact trajectory with Earth.
The scenario begins with the fictional premise that on March 26, astronomers "discovered" a NEO they consider potentially hazardous to Earth. After a "few months" of tracking, observers predict that this NEO - dubbed 2019 PDC - poses a 1 in 100 chance of impact with Earth in 2027 (in real life, the international community has decided that a 1 in 100 chance of impact is the threshold for action). Participants in this exercise will discuss potential preparations for asteroid reconnaissance and deflection missions and planning for mitigation of a potential impact's effects.

California is going to get hammered. In about 10 days out or slightly less, one of the mets reported there will be a hurricane in the Eastern Pacific, first one of the season named Alvin. Hawaii needs to be on the lookout.
You can see how much excess rainfall has occurred across the entire country, they have only been able to plant about 25% of the corn crops in the midwest.
Mississippi River flooding has been ongoing for three months or longer in some locations, making it the longest-lasting flood there since the Great Flood of 1927, the worst flood in modern history on the lower Mississippi River.
Closure of the Mississippi to shipping would cost the economy $295 million per day, said Gary LaGrange, executive director of the Port of New Orleans, during the great flood of 2011
Failure of the ORCS and the resulting loss of barge shipping that might result could well trigger a global food emergency. The U.S. is one of the world’s largest exporters of grain, and 60% of that grain is transported to market by barges travelling on the Lower Mississippi River
