Re: [RC] VT 100 weather - Barbara McCrary

We saw the results of one of these in, as I remember, Montana.  A whole swath of forest was flattened.  It was so unusual, that an explanatory display was placed beside the highway, detailing the meteorology that comes into play during such an event.

There is speculation that Silver HIll MEadow experienced what is known as a Down Burst, (sudden down rush of wind accompanied by a thunderstorm often mistaken as a tornado).
