    BBC News ^ | 16 March 2014
    The storm lasted just 90 minutes, but afterwards parts of Asmara, capital of Eritrea, were completely blocked by ice, government-run newspaper Hadas Eritrea reports. A freak rain storm has dumped as much as 1m (3ft) of hail on Asmara, capital of Eritrea, in what appears to be the heaviest rainfall ever recorded there. This week's storm lasted just 90 minutes, but afterwards parts of the city were completely blocked by ice, government-run newspaper Hadas Eritrea reports. Footage on local television shows streets running with water, and vehicles buried under the hail. It is by far the heaviest rain ever recorded...
  • Satanists Distance Themselves From Pro-Abortion “Hail Satan” Chants

    Abortion activists opposing the 20-week abortion ban bill in Texas have drawn national attention for chanting “Hail Satan” while pro-life advocates sang Amazing Grace. Now, a Twitter account run by actual Satanists is distancing itself from the pro-abortion activists. You know the abortion proponents have gone too far when even lovers of the Devil himself are disclaiming the comments.

The pro-abortion crowd has responded with repeated chants of "hail Satan." It's taken us all day to get a video recording, but here it is.

    Young women and men supporting late-term abortions shouted ‘Hail Satan’ throughout the day as the Texas House and Senate convened a special session to discuss timekeeping measures following Democrat Wendy Davis’ filibuster de-railing the vote to limit abortions to 20 weeks and establishing stricter safety standards for abortion clinics. On one occasion some young women shouted ‘Hail Satan’ as Christians gave personal testimony about  abortion and sang ‘Amazing Grace’.Breibart reports:‘It would be difficult to argue that the pro-abortion crowd wasn’t an “unruly mob” — last week protesters shut down proceedings by screaming from the gallery and used social media to debate...

    Southern California was bracing for another powerful storm front Tuesday evening as a sixth straight day of rain brought dramatic rescues, flooded freeways and concerns about mudslides.

The weather service said the wind will be so strong in some mountain communities Wednesday morning that it could uproot trees. Gusts in some areas could top 65 mph.

Below it, sits a surface low and extending from the low is a cold front that extends through extreme western Oklahoma southward through western Texas as of 9 AM, Saturday. Ahead of the front, conditions were still rather stable and surface moisture was limited with dewpoints in the low 40s across eastern Oklahoma into western Arkansas and only in the low to mid 50s across east Texas and much of Louisiana. The flow today will continue to be southerly so some advection of moister air...

    Through much of the month of July a large upper level ridge held strong from Texas northwestward through much of the western U.S. providing for a hot month while a trough held tight bringing cooler and wetter than normal conditions to the East. A flip in the pattern will take place through this week into the start of next allowing the ridge to switch with the trough. This means it will cool off in the West and heat up in the East. 90s will be the rule again for much of the southeastern fourth of the nation with 100s building...

    A few minutes ago, just after the House narrowly approved a massive new federal energy tax, there was a nasty hail storm over Washington, D.C. Could it be a sign from above that the cap and trade bill that just barely passed the House (219 to 212) is a terrible idea? Tim Phillips of Americans for Prosperity suggests the fact that the vote was so close is significant given the Democrats' overwhelming majority in the House:

Three hours east of Denver, Atwood, Kansas is losing ground. Census figures from 2000 showed 1,279 people living there, about a hundred fewer than in 1994. So, back in November, city leaders decided to offer home-sized lots for free to anyone willing to build.
