This was a sad story I saw over the weekend

Father's agonised choice saves one child, another dies

He could just have easily lost them both.

Throughout Ivan's wake, choices, some seemingly simple, made the difference in life and death. Some lives turned on three words, for example.

We had some flooding (and death) as a result of Ivan, followed of all things by an earthquake in the southeast of the state (our main fault line is in the southwest)

All I can say is, nature is a beautiful yet terrible thing, and anyone who thinks they can control it is a fool.
