    KOAA News Station, Colorado Springs ^ | 28 Jul 2016 | helensdottr
    This evening there was a torrential downpour in Colorado Springs, CO, with hailstones ranging from 1" to 3+" in size. The damage occurred mostly on the northeast to southeast side of town and is now moving off onto the plains. Windshields and house windows smashed, roads flooded with rain and hailstones, police were asking everyone to stay indoors. I live on the southwest side of town and was aware of the violence of the storms, but didn't get much here.

  • Satanists Distance Themselves From Pro-Abortion “Hail Satan” Chants

    07/04/2013 9:06:55 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 40 replies
    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.

    It's been a very interesting day at the Texas State Capitol. Cahnman's Musings hasn't been following the hearing. Instead, we've been participating in the surrounding events. LetTexasSpeak has been doing a live broadcast from the rotunda where women have been sharing their abortion related testimonies. 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. According to the National Weather Service, scattered showers Tuesday will give way to heavy rain at night. Officials said the rain will continue into Wednesday with a chance of hail, high winds and thunderstorms. 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. The snow level is expected to drop to 4,500 feet....

    A vigorous upper level storm system over northwest Oklahoma/south-central Kansas will continue to organize today. 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:
