Twisty, Dusty, Casino, Tornadoes...

yesterday oklahoma was hit by an onslaught of tornadoes from every direction. the damage is still being calculated, and things seem pretty down. me and my family survived by the grace of god. still, for others, the tornadoes did a lot worse. witnessing the awesome, yet fierce power of our creator is a humbling, and thought provoking experience. we can never be too comfortable, seeing as how our world can, literally, be thrown against the wind like a piece of paper. i've survived through many of natures angry wraths, but have never forgotten any of them. when a storm cloud brews, only to develop a massive "finger of god" that brushes over landscapes like a child playing with paint, you begin to notice, very clearly, just how small and insignificant you are. of course no one is really as forgetful as that, but it does make you reassess your life when you can easily stare death in its face while driving on I-35 southbound...
