Texas Tornado Caught on Video

Once again, we’re in the unfortunate position of having to express our sympathy to yet another group of people caught off guard by Mother Nature’s fury.

Six people were killed, and many others displaced, when a wave of 16 tornadoes ripped through northern Texas earlier this week, devastating homes leaving the land a barren wasteland.

Our hearts go out to the many people there who have lost homes, family members, and friends.

To help the people of Texas, you can make an online donation to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. If you prefer, you may donate over the phone by calling 1-800-RED-CROSS, or by text message. Simply text the word “REDCROSS” to 90999 to make a $10 donation. Finally, contributions can also be mailed to the American Red Cross, P.O. Box 37243, Washington, D.C. 20013.

In the midst of this tragedy, a few storm chasers caught some unbelievable footage of the tornado in action. While most of us can’t relate to the unmasked jubilation they display here, there’s no denying that nature is awesome, in the literal sense of the word. The following video provides a small look at the fearsome power of nature.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
