Weird weather today in much of Europe. Nothing new, in my opinion.
It's simply Nature, reminding us who is the real boss, her, not the "markets" (aka the financial markets), or other "gods" of our 2012 "Western culture".
She (Nature) often does that with earthquakes (been in a few, big ones), tsunamis, etc.
That is why I recently tweeted that I am "atheist" when it comes to modern "religions" such a Capitalism, liberalism, Communism, ordoliberalism, Merkelism, etc etc.
