All my misspelled words, typos, and grammatical errors, are intentional, and intended to troll and provoke.

Interesting.

Noticing the I-40 corridor in TN... probably floods (mainly) and tornadoes in recent years.

Notice also the counties in N AL, I'm guessing, following the paths of the tornadoes in 2011.

It is very likely that most of the West and Middle TN counties are shaded because of the May 2003 tornado sequence, Super Tuesday 2008, and the May 1-2nd 2010 Flooding/Tornado Event.  East TN is mostly shaded due to 4/27/2011 and the 2016 drought and wildfires if I had to guess.

If you scroll down it breaks it down by year all the way back to 2002. The most shading is in 2010. There are quite a few different weather events that contribute, but certainly specific days clearly stand out.

The 2006 tornado has a lot to do with red areas in Dyer County.
