Rush is talking about this May 10th USA today article that says the # of tornadoes the last 12 months is the lowest since 1950. Google it.
I’ve never heard of hashtag tornadoes.
You know what an Octothorpe is but were unable to type “The number of”?
Yes. Deal with it.
Isn't confronting it a good way of dealing with it?
No. It is an inane way of dealing with it.
The article counts all tornadoes for the past 12 months.
USA Today ought to ask Moore, OK what they think about that statistic.
The lib answer to that (fewer tornadoes) is easy. They’ll say, “Yes! But they are much more devastating and destructive. It’s for the children!! Now where is my large Chevy Suburban limo?”
Pay no attention to Facts..
They are ‘irrelevant’, the WH says so.
“The article counts all tornadoes for the past 12 months.”
I understand. If this spring had been normal, the number would be much higher.
Was there an article? Maybe you should have posted it.
Can’t link to USA Today. Copyright problems.
It means last spring was low too.
There were few tornadoes last year due to the drought and few earlier this year due to the cold spring.
Joe Cantori with Accuweather, the best weather guy in my book, says weather patterns repeat themselves and last year there were less hurricanes, too. He is predicting a higher than normal number of hurricanes this year. I don’t know if “spring” tornados are over this year since the weather was so cool for so long this time.
Incorrect. You can link to Gannett publications. You cannot post excerpts from Gannett publications.
Received another letter from Gannett Publications, publisher of USAToday, and several other newspapers. Due to contractual arrangements they have with third-party content providers, they have denied our request to allow posting of excerpts. They will only allow the posting of titles and links.
Well I tried and got a message from FreeRepublic telling me I couldn’t. So I didn’t. Try it yourself.
