Just to the southwest of us are tornado warnings…and the weather is moving to the northeast.
My title comes from being in the middle of a book on the sinking of the Titanic…on April 14-15 1912, depending on where you were standing. As the author says, it was the first major catastrophe in a century that was to hold so very many.
I wonder if it ended the Edwardian Age?
