Not Whether But Weather

With the advent of two severe hurricanes over the past month -- Katrina & now Rita -- I've heard some postulations that "GOD" is trying to send us a message. While I, of course, don't believe that a personified deity is trying to dial us up, if this is the intent after all, then I think the message should be quite clear -- Shit happens.

That may sound a wee bit crass, but weather happens. It has happened since day one and will continue to happen as long as this planet exists. Regardless of what's going on in our individual and collective lives, weather will effect it.

While I certainly subscribe to the belief that GLOBAL WARMING plays a role in the ever-increasing severity of storms, global warming is not the chief culprit. In fact, there is NO culprit at all. Weather is a natural occurrence.

Humanity could live in a state of virtual utopia and we would still have to cope with tornadoes, floods, earthquakes AND hurricanes. That's just the way it is.
