Unsettled Weather

I wrote yesterday of the small snowfall we had on the night of April 1-2. Behind the storm as things warmed up (relatively speaking; I still had to light the fireplace), we had some unsettled weather.

Big Wind

As I was leaving the Post Office on my usual post-lunch walk to collect the mail, I saw this whirlwind in the distance. It's difficult to judge distance, but this may have kicked up on the sandy flats south of I-80 and north of the railroad tracks. The baby tornado lifted a cloud of dust several hundred meters high into the sky before dispersing.

Little Wind
A younger sibling of the whirlwind kicked up a small funnel of diatomaceous earth at the Imerys Celite plant on Front Street as I walked home.

I'm glad the Big Wind didn't roll through Fernley House.
