Hurricane Patricia is a warning – it just broke our hurricane scale. It won’t be the last! Don’t take my word for it. The Weather Channel just reported that Hurricane Patricia is the strongest storm ever recorded in the western hemisphere – top speeds were recorded of 235 miles per hour! Luckily its speeds dropped…

Taiwan just got hit by a Monster Typhoon (hurricane) that was one of the planet’s largest – 180 mph winds at one point!  We have to ask the question: when the Atlantic Ocean gets as HOT as the Pacific Ocean is now, are we going to be getting these off the scale CAT 5’s instead…

Usually our Hurricane season doesn’t officially start until June 1 of every year and runs to November 30, and usually nothing ever happens until AUGUST — but not this year.   We already have a mysterious LOW in the Atlantic that could prove to be our first storm of what is supposed to be a “slow”…

I took this photo of this ancient glass on a building in Norway – in 2011. Apparently for centuries people wanted a ‘window with a view’ no matter how crude it was. Glass is a 5,000 year old technology…. We risk our lives and six figure dwellings on it every day.  I had no idea…
