You Can Never Leave

Religious family abandon US only to be rescued at seaWhen a Arizona family  decided to abandon the US (because they hated government control) and take a “leap of faith” to see where God would lead them in a small boat,  you can pretty much guess what happened. Yep,  they sailed smack bang into a series of storms which left them floating adrift for weeks before they were finally rescued  by a Venezuelan fishing vessel. Now the family are back where they started. God has spoken.

So very ironic. The storm blew away many of the vendors tents which were set up for the Oz festival. Even the real-life munchkins from the “lollipop guild” (yes, a few are still alive), who were guests of honor, were forced to batten down the hatches as the power went off.

Holy sinkhole Batman

Geez, Tropical Storm Agatha left a healthy reminder of the danger of storms, as a sinkhole swallowed up a three storey building and a house in Guatemala City.Geez, blame that on a poor sewage drainage system! So far the storm has claimed 144 lives and left thousands homeless.
