:girlsad3: While the long-lived tornado did not affect the immediate area I live in, it did strike 4 counties in the southern portion of the tri-state area where I am. We got lucky and received rain off and on all day that took away the energy from a possible source that would be capable of producing such a storm. Here is what hit those counties in the link below. Dawson Springs is a town of less than 2500 that still has 100 people missing. The tornado took out 3/4 of it. It is where the 2 month old that passed away in the hospital and you may have seen on national tv was from. But first, some info from a local meteorologist and then the photographer.:

These are absolutely stunning ! This is the supercell that produced the long-tracked supercell on Friday night, as taken by Kayla Coleman aboard a flight from Chicago to Huntsville at 35,000 feet. Based on her flight path and time, the city lights at the bottom are Madisonville and the storm is southwest of the Dawson Springs Area. Notice the starry sky above this monster of a storm.

When I was flying over this storm - I had no idea it was going to be so deadly.
Keeping everyone that was involved in the December 10th storm in my prayers
Some photos I took of the storm at 35,000 feet in the air

:5val: Here's an incredible story of survival involving a 15 month and 3 month old the night the tornado struck in Barnsley a town in Hopkins County, Kentucky. This happened 54 miles from where I live. Watch the news story from WFIE in Evansville, In and be sure to read the whole story underneath to take it all in. After that, there is a 2nd video with photos of the beautiful baby boys and more of that story.

An article from The Atlantic: "HOW ANIMALS PERCEIVE THE WORLD"
It is long but well worth the time to read it.

Excellent article albeit very heartbreaking. We know what's wrong but in most cases we don't correct our ways. :girlsad3: Thank you for the share Gigi.

:eggthumb: Thanks, gigi! I really enjoy reading and learning about things such as this...will not know the outcome in my lifetime, but at this point it doesn't look to be a favorable one...

Yes, heartbreaking as I sit outside with the dog watching and listening to overhead FedEx jets fly overhead preparing to land at the airport miles away. Bright headlights pierce the “sort of” dark sky. One after another disrupting who knows what. And in my own yard, a light turned on for security. Fireflies abound.
Please don’t think I am disparaging FedEx. We want our goods and they are just one who meets our insatiable desires
In my lifetime? Probably not.

A sad article from The Guardian about Avian Flu - mostly in the UK.

Gosh...what a heartbreaking article, gigi...and here I thought the US had it bad...but, I don't think it was this bad...

I used to joke that the cockroach would be the last survivor...now I'm not so sure...It appears the virus may trump that....not only in human populations but animal as well.

About human intrusion in nature...I watched a fascinating PBS special about Appalachia. One segment featured an individual that does nothing but record nature's sounds in remote mountainous areas: frogs, owls, crickets, fox, silence etc. I was fortunate to grow up on enough acreage to hear all of those things at night, but wonder how many have never heard the deafening sounds of hundreds of crickets in the middle of the night

Do you remember the name or have a link to the PBS Appalachia episode? I poked around and couldn't find about that subject matter. There are so many options on series: Inside Appalachia; Nature; American Experience; POV; and more! I just haven't hit the right one yet!!!

I'll see if I can figure it out...sounds of the forest was just one segment...the rest was equally fascinating!!
