Wikipedia doesn’t do lurid, so we’ll go with NBC:
Hurricane Patricia became the strongest storm ever measured on the planet early Friday …

Doesn’t look like much actually happened.

It was supposed to be a doomsday storm; a manifestation of wrath and destiny; an avatar of Kali… Slowly but inevitably heading to ground, tearing cities up by their roots and returning them to the earth in broken shards, destroying forms capriciously and indiscriminately… But instead it turned out to be little more than a light rainshower. This is almost disappointing.
Nothing much. I was in Puerto Vallarta last night and we got nothing but a steady rain. Not even any wind. The mountains apparently shielded us from the storm, which passed 60 miles to the east.
then it was the biggest storm in the westen hemisphere then it was well it slowed considerably before hitting land
Still a striking photograph, though. Human beings are IN SPACE! That will never stop being cool to me.
I’m sorry. It’s my fault. I’m working on someone’s roof, with two 9′ by 17′ tarps covering the vulnerable areas. That’s what attracted the storm to Texas.
I put my foot through part of the roof last Sunday….
I think we are WAY overdue for another giant disaster. These last fourteen years have been unaccountably boring for some reason.
I remember watching Terrorpalooza 2001 thinking it was the start of something big, but in fact it seems to have heralded a Long Pause in history.
Without Bin Laden we might now be fighting in Taiwan and Korea.
Of course when things do start going wrong again, everything may start to go wrong.
