Tightening rotation, amid the driving rain. Chunks of ice slam into the earth, as lightning shatters the sky. A cacophony of thunder deafens all those below. Suddenly, the crescendo; a massive cone of dust, dirt, and hyper-fast wind collides with the earth. With the speed of a fighter jet, the tornado rips through the lives of animal and man alike. Nothing can challenge the fury of Mother Nature. The vile cone of destruction was on the ground for what seemed like an eternity. It was only there for three minutes. In that three minutes, all was obliterated. Nobody survived. Beyond the splinters of wood, shards of glass, and ruins of the town, no one would even know there was life in this once thriving place. The souls are at rest, as the tempest rages, and moves on.
In memory of those who have lost their lives in violent weather.
