Tornado Alley?

Driving back from Maine, fog gave way to light rain, then downpour crossing into New Hampshire. WBZ radio reported a tornado warning for southeast Essex County, MA. Rarity of rarity this far east. Sure enough, a tornado did indeed cut through Revere, damaging hundreds of homes (Globe story here). Driving southwest on Rte. 495, on the other side of the county, the tail end of the storm was visible ahead, giving way to a beautiful summer day.


  1. beautiful and scary. I had a similar moment of pause watching the news in Ohio Wednesday am. Road trips require one to check quite a swath of weather - something I'd forgotten. Makes things interesting...

  2. It's true, road trips make you think about weather in ways we usually don't in the city. It's more than whether to take an umbrella or not.
