Odd Weather Related News


It was reported in the news yesterday that over 100 ducks and geese were killed during Tuesday night's storm in central Indiana. The ducks and geese that lived in a neighborhood pond, were found littering the nearby yards. One was even blown through the window of a house.

This is the same storm that blew down Lisa's pine tree. There were 100 mph straight line winds in the Avon area where this destruction took place. I don't believe that I've ever heard of that many, really any, ducks or geese being killed in a storm before. Maybe it happens all the time and this time it's news worthy because of the sheer number killed. I just couldn't imagine looking out after a storm and seeing the ducks and geese from our pond littering my lawn. How awful.

I heard about this happening. Sad for the birds. Sad for the residents that have to clean up. It was a wicked wind.

How depressing! Sounds like all of you in Indiana got it worse than us here in Northern Illinois, although the wind was bad enough to keep me up that night.

Weather has been crazy but how interesting with these ducks/geese! Never heard such a thing with so many deaths! Hmm
