Storm chasers and tornado tour companies may be unhappy…..

…..but I consider a quiet tornado season to be great news.

We’re being spared the death and destruction tornadoes too often cause. It’s only a matter of time before one of nature’s most violent forms of weather returns, but we should be grateful for the lull while it lasts.

Ask the residents of Joplin or Greensburg or Tuscaloosa how much they miss tornadoes.
