We rarely stop to think about what kinds of catastrophic damage over-sized hail can wreak on cars, property, crops, glass windows, greenhouses, etc, as we rarely get a chance to ever see such weather oddities. But hurricane Irene created enormous softball sized hail in the Bahamas, that made the loud sound of a rifle report as it fell on concrete and hard surfaces. Now stop and consider what kinds of damage and threat to living creatures that such a similar falling hail of large meteorites from a celestial object might bring to earth’s surface.
People, pets and domestic animals would need to take cover immediately under heavy reinforced structures that could withstand such a barrage, even if it only lasted a few minutes. If you do not have a basement or underground location close to home, look around in your neighborhood and try to discreetly locate a spot where you could dive in and take over, even if it was just for a few seconds.
I know. You are all laughing at my astronomy and storm related paranoia. That’s ok, I can handle that. I just want my friends and neighbors not to get their heads inadvertently bashed in, should we all be suddenly subjected to such a side effect from a passing celestial object, even if that object does not show up for another year or two.
Laugh all you want to. Yuck it up. But remember the places locally where you could discreetly take cover if you were caught outdoors and something like this [ or worse ] started to happen.
