    It’s a dangerous world, full of trouble and deceit. Enjoy God’s sunny days while you can.

    “Nine White People Die”
    Hard to imagine that such a focus or terminology was actually used eighty years ago!

    I live in Minnesota and we’ve been very lucky the past 50 years with almost no deaths from tornadoes. check the link and you’ll see that’s not the case pre-1970 there were years with dozens of deaths. the 1965 tornado hit a suburb of Minneapolis called fridley and my dad was a part owner of a rental house that got destroyed. as a little kid I viewed the damage, the whole neighborhood was wiped out.
