Purely through dumb luck I beat death or serious injury.
I was walking across Indiana University’s campus about 2:30 p.m. today when a thunderstorm or a tornado or a micro-burst hit Bloomington. I dashed to the safety of the Health, Physical Education & Recreation building to beat the rain and, once inside, looked back. I saw high winds blow down – where I had been walking about 20 seconds before – one small tree, about 30 feet in length; two branches from a large tree that were about as big as the downed tree; and several smaller branches from assorted trees.
An ironic note: Before leaving home this morning, I removed a large branch from the road because it nearly made traffic impassible. Since it blew down from an old tree near my yard, I felt responsible.
Ain’t spring weather great?
Armed, dangerous …
and off my medication.
