Tennessee Tornado

Tornadoes in Tennessee are probably not all that uncommon but I like this line from CNN.com about a possible tornado that hit near Chattanooga last night.

“One of the vehicles involved was a tractor trailer carrying 1,000 pounds of toy cap gun powder. ‘Since there’s no fire, it’s not terribly volatile,’ Heidt said.”

Not that I’d like to hear of anybody getting hurt but it would have been kind of weird to explain that a tractor trailer burst into flames because its cargo of toy cap gun powder caught a spark.

  1. Maybe it’s just me, but I just don’t think that toygun cap powder should be transported in 1,000 lb batches.
