question

nocnoc - did not see the movie - what was that line?

We noticed odd blotches on the computer weathermap - right in the area where the storms were reported. Modern technology shows a lot but it cannot prevent the damage and destruction. So sorry for the loss those farms experienced. It's tough enough being a farmer (I assume, not being one, but feel sure I am right).

COW! ANOTHER COW!

That was the line from the movie! Too hilarious in the movie, but not so funny when it's really happened to these poor animals and the family who owned them. The cows in the movie were flying through the air; acutally just one cow who was being spun around and around.
