Time and Tornadoes
Posted October 20, 2014 at 04:07 am

So in the year 1918, the US discovered time zones (what the fuck were people doing before that??) and approved Daylight Savings Time, which by the way will be in effect here in the States-except-parts-of-Arizona on November 2nd of this year.

On May 20th, 1918, Codell, Kansas was hit by a tornado on the same date for the THIRD YEAR IN A ROW, and these are the two events of 1918 that I picked to share because once again I am old and therefore fascinated by weather and time measurement.

And that's all for today,  because my computer is far away from my bed and it's fucking cold and I'm going to get under the covers now. Happy Monday!

I also love the podcast My Brother My Brother And Me!

My old pal R. Stevens and I used to do a podcast called Coffee and Cider! It was mostly about being work-obsessed idiots and human beings who like beverages and have cats.
