Told you it was a bad spot for a curling rink, didn't I?

WASHINGTON, Illinois - 53 million people in the United States were under severe weather watch as storms pounded much of the north central and eastern coastal states, brought on by the wrath of God.

While under a half dozen people were thought to be dead, many were left homeless, most in trailer parks, as God knows a soft target when he sees it.

Particularly well hit was the town of Washington, Illinois, and it was reported that mail to be delivered in that area was found over 100 miles away in another town, which is actually quite close relative to how bad the postal service is.

Crops survived the many tornado outbreaks, largely due to the fact that, come on people, it's late autumn and they've all been cut down.

At last count, there were over 60 tornado sightings registered, which amounted to only 12 tornadoes, so roughly 5 people saw each tornado. One can only hazard a guess where everyone else was looking.

I mean, come on. 53 million people affected and only 60 saw tornadoes? Which just goes to prove, weather prediction is not a science, but an art, and largely it's still at the stage of 'paint-by-numbers' with a lot of people painting outside the little boxes.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
