She's moody, unstable, smothering and prone to major outbursts of anger. No, she's not your ex-girlfriend. She's someone you need to learn to embrace and respect…she's Mother Earth.
Earthquakes, and volcanoes, and hurricanes oh my! Well, Dorothy, we're not in Kansas anymore. Then again, if we're talking about tornadoes we could be in Kansas.
Whether or not you have/had plans to travel to Europe, we've all been affected by forces of nature beyond our control. As we approach the annual hurricane season we've already experienced the perfect 'storm' of natural disasters over the past 6 months including significant earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunami warnings. The earthquakes had tragic human consequences, the volcano eruptions have been mere disruptions, and Hawai'i was left unscathed by a major tsunami warning.
