After the Storm- March 2 - Nashville, Tennessee
There was little wind, no thunder, and no lightning in the part of Bellevue where I live. Yet just three miles northwest of here there are trees down, and there is no power. As the storm came in, I stood on my porch and heard the sirens going off. Then I heard a most strange and peculiar sound.
Not the freight train sound that people say a tornado makes, but a pulsating sound- as though a giant thresher was coming over the hill.
It was a great wave of quarter sized hail. It lasted only a few minutes, and then the storm moved toward downtown Nashville.
Here are some photos I took after the weather went through.
