This is a huge pet peeve of mine, and after discussing it briefly with a friend, I thought it worth blogging about. Did you ever flip channels and catch a snippet of The Weather Channel or The Learning Channel when they are showing Storm Stories called something like “Nature’s Wrath” or “The Fury of the Storm,” or some other title implying that there is some angry force torturing our otherwise peaceful world? That makes me crazy. Nature does not have intent. It certainly isn’t angry. It just is. We’re just stupid enough to put ourselves in harm’s way by building on hurricaine-battered shores, fault lines, and tornado zones.
