August 26, 2016: Don't mess with Mother Nature

I think the first time I truly realized how powerful nature was was during the Great Flood of 1993. I watched houses get carried away by the Mississippi River near St. Louis. Not mobile homes...houses.

As I'm trying to get familiar with Detroit, I learned of tornadoes that touched down in nearby Windsor, ON on Wednesday. No one was killed and there were few injuries. But you look at photos like this, where Mother Nature just laughs at what we try to put in her way...pretty crazy stuff.

Stories here and here.

This has been knocked back a bit, but it's still burning less than 10 miles south of me.

Nature is a mother, all right...

If I can get the photo data size down to forum regulation, I might have one of my own for tomorrow...something a bit less terrifying than tornadoes and fire .

if you're using a computer running Windows, you can use the builtin Paint program and choose Resize.

ps, the picture is ... Wow.

I've been resizing them...I'm on a Mac now. I try to resize them so that they fit, but within the window I'm looking at. I'll try to shrink them more though, because I don't want them exploding out of the frame for others.

Mother Nature always wins at Twister.

elSicomoro; I find if you stay around a width of about 700 pixels most sites do OK with them.
