Re: ? for Mets & long time trackers

I saw some of those steeple pics and thought something was odd about them...

It's difficult for those of us outside hurricane areas to visualize what is going on = I thought it was like a big wind blowing stuff around.

Downdraft... interesting. I have seen the results here... looks odd with telephone poles all snapped at the same height and the broken off parts lying all in a row. That debris didn't go far either. Signs in the road, trees and limbs pretty much just toppled over. I was driving at the time and thought 'tornado'! especially when we got hit with a massive amount of hail, but I was kinda busy dodging fallen electric lines to think about the fact that debris was close to where it started from...
