dmac085, we all have to be hoping that the weather cooperates with our effort.

I feel so sorry with those tornadoes in USA, I know, even in places that NEVER has them, they do appears. A couple of month there was one in Chiloe, Souther Chile, it devastated a little fishing village. Chile never had tornadoes.

What's really going on is the natural geological progression of
the earth. Its been happening for millions of years, its just that
humans are around to watch it and tying every superstition they
can to it. Thats my opinion anyway.

What is going on, in my opinion, is that the Earth Magnetic Field are changing drastically. The north pole is moving ever slowly toward Siberia and this is affecting the weather.

Also, not to be an alarmist, in other words the axis is changing, not only as a natural geological progression as Cris316, but the latest earthquake , the one in Chile in 2/27/2010 and lately the one in Japan 3/11/11 move the earth axis some points to Siberia.

Interesting, eh?
