Migration Day 24
Hail, and Tornado Reports
A powerful storm system swept across Indiana early this morning. Richard,
Charlie, and Chris sat in darkness for hours while the winds shook
the motor home. Chris reports: "The continuous lightning gave
us brief glimpses of the trees straining against their roots. One mature
tree actually did come down just 100 feet away from us. We went out
to check the birds at first light and were relieved to find no damage
to the pen and all the birds looked relaxed and happy, playing in
the standing water." You guessed it: another day in Morgan County.

forecast for the rest of the week does not look promising.
It looks suspiciously familiar to the past week with
a tight pressure gradient across the Ohio Valley keeping
winds southerly and temperatures well above normal. How
would you feel if you were on the team? If you were one
of the whoopers?
