Psalm 91

1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you say, “The LORD is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

Probably caused by all that drilling and fracking we have going on here in the States.

Not to mention AGW, eating too much red meat, the greediness of conservatives, the legacy of George Bush, coffee, the Tea Party, that kooky Sarah Palin, etc. The weather will return to “normal” when Obamao is reelected.

Probably caused by living in the central section of North America during springtime. I lived on the northern edge of the belt in Michigan, and we were good for about three close calls every year.

Don’t be silly, it’s because of the Bush tax cuts and the republican’s war on women. Geeesh, get your facts straight.

I’m dead center in the “high risk”. Better get the storm cellar ready.

Or the anticipation of Romney's roadrunner-like sprint to the left leaving some dust clouds and a void in the air to be refilled with an on-rushing wind.

No, no - it’s the evil Frackers that are causing it.

Amen! Please be in prayer for all of us in the target zone this weekend. One tornado today hit near where our children and grandchildren live. Thank God they were in a shelter!

Oklahoma County will not test tornado sirens Saturday afternoon. If you hear the sirens, it is a real tornado threat.

Be safe.

I read this severe weather hurricane forecast four days ago.

How do they know that far in advance about tornados? Maybe they are better at reading the weather than before in my lifetime. Hurricanes used to be somewhat of a surprise. Not anymore, I guess.
