      Mother Nature seems to be in a very nasty mood lately,
      at least in the US: tornadoes, floods, wildfires, the
      2007 Atlantic hurricane season's first named storm
      (Andrea) coming weeks before the official start of the
      season. Plus there's been a lot of other ugliness
      (riots, massive and/or ugly demonstrations, shooting
      incidents, nasty international disputes) throughout
      the world.

      There's a couple of asteroids that are in conjunction
      right now, Storm and Torricelli (which seems to be
      associated with trouble and crisis; it's named for an
      Italian scientist, Evangelista Torricelli, a
      contemporary of Galileo who invented the barometer).
      They're both currently at 28 Taurus, aligned with this
      supernova (and quincunx Pluto).
