Nothing About The Bakken -- Quiet, Quiet Year For Tornadoes -- November 12, 2016

From ClimateDepot:
NOAA tornado data: 2016 ‘one of the quietest years since records began in 1954.'
Below average for 5th year in a row.
2016 also looks like being one of the quietest years for tornadoes since records began in 1954.
Only 2013 has had less tornadoes since 2005.
Flashback 2015: NOAA: Number of major tornadoes in 2015 was ‘one of the lowest on record.’
Tornadoes (in 2015) below average for 4th year in a row.
Extreme weather failing to follow 'global warming' predictions.
The U.S. has had no Category 3 or larger hurricane make landfall since 2005 – the longest spell since the Civil War.
Strong F3 or larger tornadoes have been in decline since the 1970s.
What Can I Say?

My wife's birthday party was at a local dance studio where she goes to Zumba four times a week. The deal was this:
  • the dance studio was reserved for four hours;
  • no alcoholic beverages;
  • adults and their teenage children attended;
  • lots and lots of food;
  • games, like charades; and,
  • lots of dance instruction
This is what I did not understand: I assumed dance lessons would be Texas classics like line dancing. Not.

The instructor was an Argentina woman. This was the typical song we danced to:

Pitbull-Fireball, John Ryan

Before you ask if this song is popular, note that the YouTube song has almost 157 million hits. Almost two hours of this music and dancing to go with it.

I'm going to be really, really sore tomorrow morning.
