I don't have links, but the southern US has had several tornadoes this evening with several casualties (mainly Alabama and Georgia, I think, maybe South Carolina). Here in central IL we are bracing for near record breaking cold (for March). Southern Illinois is having severe flooding.
Omaha NE got their snowest winter on record (4x their average snowfall in Feb), Minneapolis broke a 1962 record for snowfall, Duluth got three times it's normal snowfall for Feb breaking a 80 year old record, several Wisconsin places beat records set in the 30s and 40s.

A tornado outbreak hit the South on Sunday, leaving damage in several states.
At least 22 people were killed as multiple tornadoes hit Lee County, Alabama.
Reports of damage stretched across both states Sunday evening.
More than 42,000 homes and businesses lost electricity in Georgia and Alabama.
"Our hearts go out to those who lost their lives in the storms that hit Lee County today," Ivey said in a tweet. "Praying for their families & everyone whose homes or businesses were affected."
Amen Father, we know it's only going to get worse and we pray for all those that will be affected. Lord Jesus keep our eyes focused on You and Your shining light as darkness falls all around us. Your will be done Heavenly Father. Keep us in Your Word.
With "the judges and the courts making their own laws that ignore the laws of God".
It opens it's mouth to blaspheme God and His dwelling place and those who live in Heaven.
And what's up with these guys in Brazil?
Extremely heavy rain hit parts of Brazil on April 8, 2019, causing deadly floods across Rio de Janeiro. Parts of the region received more than 2 months' worth of April rain in just 9 hours.
They've got water running through the streets, filling up their cars to the level of their radios, but they're dancing and playing in the water.
The one guy is standing there in front of his door with water up to his knees, a beer in his hand and holding on to what looks like his barbecue. It looks like they got the days of Noah going on down there.
and today in Central IL it is 63. Monday night I was watching my son's baseball game wrapped in a blanket. Not a thick blanket, but still, it's June so I should not need a blanket.
Natalie, crazy right. I’m Midwest boy myself. These last few years have been really crazy weather. Extreme temp changes up and down one day to the next. This year though seems to have stepped into over drive. Increased earthquakes, volcanoes, tornadoes. Record snow. Record rain. And it’s only going to get worse, I think.
Guadalajara (Mexico) (AFP) - A freak hail storm on Sunday struck Guadalajara, one of Mexico's most populous cities, shocking residents and trapping vehicles in a deluge of ice pellets up to two meters (yards) deep.
"I've never seen such scenes in Guadalajara," said the state governor, Enrique Alfaro.

EnochWalked: www.timesofisrael.com/liveblog-april-21-2021/ "Netanyahu: Bennett has cut deal with Lapid to be PM of left-wing gov’t. Yamina chair rips PM for ‘holding country hostage,’ pushing for ‘5th, 6th, 7th election,’". Two weeks until a new PM then?

bernie: Mike, Macron is basically saying it needs to be changed because it's wrong to not hold someone responsible just because they were on drugs. Why the courts got it wrong is beyond me.

EnochWalked: "The word assassin is often believed to derive from the word hashshashin (Arabic: حشّاشين, ħashshāshīyīn, also hashishin, hashashiyyin, or assassins), and shares its etymological roots with hashish (/hæˈʃiːʃ/ or /ˈhæʃiːʃ/; from Arabic: حشيش ḥashīsh)."

EnochWalked: I think you're right YS. I believe the theory was that the assassins of old may have used it as a performance enhancing drug. "it is commonly believed that Assassins were under the influence of hashish during their killings or during their indoctrination"

boraddict: To be a god is to be a guide. To follow a god is to follow a guide. To be your own guide is to be your own god. To follow God is to not follow yourself as a guide. Follow Jesus. My thought for the day.
