Being from Oklahoma, I have seen my fair share of damage caused by weather on TV or heard about it in the news. I have however very rarely seen wacky weather like the recent tornadoes, so late in the year. Most twisters that occurs in Oklahoma occur in early spring and continue throughout midsummer. The recent weather conditions though have proven to be an exception to that rule. The surprising weather seem to have caught many other U.S. residents off guard as well.
These freak storms along with other extreme weather conditions like flash floods took the lives of forty people living in the U.S. The unexpected weather has impacted people in other ways too. Over 2,900 flight were canceled as of 7:00 Tonight. That does not include the 4,000 flight delays that occurred as well. The worst flight delays occurred in a Chicago airport.
This recent wacky weather even put a hold on two up and coming politicians named Chris Christie and Marco Rubio. The plans the two had made to further expand their campaign were put on hold when the wacky weather manifested itself. Here’s hoping the new year will wash the weather anew with a clean slate.
