A series of fast moving storm cells has been going through my area recently. One such storm took down a large circus tent at a nearby fair grounds. A father and his 8 year old daughter were killed. Many people were injured.
Tuesday I sat out a passing storm at home rather than drive into town. After it passed I figured it was safe to drive. A few miles away from the house I came across about a 5 mile section of road that had hail piled up along the shoulders. It looked like the aftermath of a 2 inch snowstorm.
Unlike a snowstorm some sections of road were covered in shredded vegetation. Trees were stripped of their leaves and small branches. The air smelled like god's giant lawn mower came through, sort of like a freshly cut lawn, but magnified many times. Good thing I waited out the storm.
Over the years I've learned to keep a weather eye out. Between my years in a tent, on a motorcycle, and now a sailboat, I've learned to watch the sky. In recent years it seems like there have been a lot more severe storms. Don't take them lightly.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
