Right.  This storm is the latest example of how Mother Nature is always ready to hand out the beatdowns and do Very Bad Things to the human race.  
With the threat of illness, injury, or death always hovering in the background, there's very little need for us to do Very Bad Things to each other if we can help it.

(Though that's easier said than done, I know, what with Mother Nature having equipped the human race with egos and all.)
