Unbelievable Weather

You wouldn't know it to look at my yard, but Tornado Alley-style weather blasted through New Hampshire yesterday. The pictures and video on WMUR this morning are as hard to believe as any such scenes of destruction.

In New Hampshire we don't typically get wind storms that explode buildings. But now we do. How long before the Republicans blame the Democrats and the Democrats blame the Republicans?

According to our TV meteorologist, our weather pattern has been set by a big area of low pressure camped out over the Midwest. It has dominated our weather for most of the month of July. It seems like longer. The odd day might be bright and dry, but many have been moist and unsettled, leaving us the same way. Severe weather has struck concentrated areas, leaving others untouched. You never know when you might be in the cross hairs.

Today is supposed to be one of the nice ones. Then things deteriorate gradually through the weekend. But where? The weather strikes with all the notorious inaccuracy of World War II German buzz bombs.
