It's tornado season. This is when the temperatures go from hot to cold to hot and to cold again, and so on, which invites the possibility of a tornado and hail. The people up in North Dakota are in critical situation with the flood of the Red River near Fargo. There's ice on top of that. Homes are flooded and this morning, I was watching the brainless Regis & Kelly show where Regis shows a picture of a dog standing in front of a house under icy, cold water and then, screams at Obama where he should send the stimulus. "If you send it, you should send it there! Please!!!" I am definitely sure the stimulus going to help North Dakota will go to this. All of the sandbagging may not be enough to stop the Red River from flooding. And more flooding is to come when this water flows down the Missouri River and into the Mississippi River, almost a repeat of last year.
What was experienced here was hail that damaged roofs and sidings of many homes. People rely on home insurance to take care of what needs to be done. And this was an on-going process of getting these homes repaired throughout the spring, summer and fall of last year. Home repair was what moved the economy for 2008. But, it came as a result of weather catastrophes.
