There are already a lot of Alternate History threads (which I need to post into the Alternate History hub thread) but most of these talk about human-related factors, so let's talk about some modern historical what ifs where it's nature that screws us over.
In this thread— Yellowstone explodes! It's a supereruption that totally destroys Wyoming, and takes about 45% of the continental United States (and potentially all of civilization) with it.

Yellowstone Supervolcano Erupts in September 1914

Here's another one, a Yellowstone eruption in 1941.

 

So in the video, we have a Yellowstone eruption in the present day. The first AH scenario sets it in 1914, while this one puts it in 1941.

 

You know what would be an interesting scenario to play out, though? A Yellowstone eruption some time during the Great Depression, during a far more unstable time period in world history. Imagine if Yellowstone blew in 1931.
