Out of the Blue

Well, we survived our lost hour here well enough... I still have a couple of clocks to change, which will give me more to grumble about, but most of the important clocks update themselves automatically well enough (except for iPhones, of course). I should be grumbling about anything of course, especially today, as it marks the one-year anniversary of the devastating Japanese earthquake and tsunami. I saw a television piece this morning on the aftermath, and it's sad to see how slowly the recovery is progressing just due to how difficult it is to dispose of potentially radioactive debris, which is a tricky problem to say the least.

Re: Mars Tornado Photo

The article referenced never calls the dust devil a tornado, and even explains why it isn't a tornado, yet the Huffers put "Mars Tornado' in the title....
