Beware the Hair!

The company for which I work sent out a severe weather alert via email earlier today. It included the following ominous warning:
The NWS Doppler radar indicated a severe thunderstorm capable of producing up to one inch diameter hair and damaging winds up to 60 mph.
One inch diameter hair???

I've heard of storms that rained frogs, and storms that rained fish. Even storms that rained snakes. But I've never, ever, heard of a storm that rained DREADLOCKS.

Global warming sure is doing scary things to our weather patterns!
