    I was actually recently thinking about hurricanes. It`s funny how, to me, since I live in Florida and have been through quite a few hurricanes and know how scary they are on land... from a space shuttle`s view, they actually look really peaceful. It just looks like a blanket of perfect clouds in a circle, hanging out. If you`ve never been caught in a hurricane or tornado situation, it`s impossible to imagine how different it is under the clouds.

    It would be cool to sky-dive into the eye, wouldn`t it?
    Anyway, it is one of the many beautiful forces of nature in the world, besides fire.
