Don’t Mess With Mother Nature - 17 Photos

 Saying "nature is powerful" would be an understatement. On one hand, nature can be beautiful and calming. Nature can inspire awe in us. On the other hand, Mother Nature can also be powerful in a not-so-great sense. Events like floods, extreme snowfalls, heatwaves, and hurricanes can leave us completely powerless against nature. Even more ordinary events, like unexpected rain, can be frustrating. The photo collection below depicts how natural events and extreme weather can disrupt, and sometimes absolutely ruin, one’s day.
