What is this, Missouri?!?!

Tuesday we had a 5.8 earthquake.  Tonight Hurricane Irene arrives.  What is this, Missouri?! This evening, while reading George Grant and Greg Wilbur's EXCELLENT Christian Almanac [one of our favorites] I discovered that it was, in fact, on this day in 1667 that the very first recorded American hurricane hit Jamestown, VA -- and that before live webcams, doppler radar, and poured foundation walls*.
*This was also the day in 1883 when Krakatoa erupted killing an estimated 36,000 in Indonesia.  Try to fit that one into Rob Bell's theology.
