I gather a bunch of you experienced a May polar vortex this weekend. Or maybe it’s still going? There’s also supposed to be an epic hurricane season — epic if you are, in fact, a hurricane-in-training, excited to be called up to the majors. Plus we have murder hornets and rats giving humans a previously rodent-only Hepatitis E… So when I saw that Twister threw its big premiere on roughly this date in 1996, I thought, “That sounds about right.”
