The article “Blizzard!” by Jeanie Mebane and the poem from “The Blizzard Voice” by Ted Kooser both portray the blizzards of 1888. For example, the first sentence of the article “Blizzard!” says “no one on the prairie was prepared for the violent blizzard” that shows the reader that it's not just a couple of inches of snow, it shows that the blizzard will be windy and there will be a lot of snow and damage, also the fact that no one was expecting it makes it a whole lot worse. Another example is in paragraph 5 “Hunt and her students were blinded by the force of the blizzard and almost immediate felt their eyelashes crust over with ice.” Even though it doesn't specifically say that it's windy you just know because of the details. Also in the
In Jim Murphy’s book, “Blizzard!” the blizzard took over most of the East Coast, therefore leading to the moral and ethical consequences towards the citizens and society. The blizzard threatened the safety of others and blocked all communication systems as well transportation systems. Due to the blockage of communication and transportation systems, separation of families and friends began to happen because they could not get to each other or contact each other.

If the disaster was handled differently the men could have put cloth on their faces and go outside to water the plants. If the disaster had not occurred then we would still be bad at farming.

Before the Act, most farmers living in the east were renters who only borrowed land from larger owners, they had to pay taxes and split their gains. After the Act, there was a hope and realistic chance that small farmers could be counted among the landowners.

Gods’ Hand in Devastation In the sixteenth century, a highly infectious disease known as the Black Plague, began to spread across the shores of Europe. The term the Black Plague was quickly recognized and feared by all Europeans. In just a short amount of time the disease had spread throughout the entire continent of Europe, killing roughly fifty percent of Europeans. Those who survived the disease were left wondering “why did this happen?”.
The Mongols were a spiritual civilization who believed unfavorable weather could be influenced by religious specialists and saw their natural disasters as god’s will. North Africans, on the other hand, viewed the black plague and other natural disasters with acceptance as they were nature’s way of recycling itself. Europe only saw fear in the black plaque and went through great costs to evade it. How a natural disaster is perceived is very much dependent on the society in which is being
