Surviving the Storm

I have survived a lot of bad storms during my life.

Thunder, snow, torrential rains, hurricanes. But I have never felt as helpless as I did yesterday while sitting in my trusty rental vehicle hiding out during the most ferocious hail storm, accompanied by tornado warnings, that I have ever experienced. 

I was not afraid, but I was concerned for my fellow drivers on the highways.

I took this video of the incessant hail storm--but itr kept falling and falling. Fortunately I was in a gas station under the awning and so my vehicle did not get pummeled too badly. 

It seemed there was no end to the storm. I was amazed at its ferocity.

OK, I'm gonna ask this question just this once: people like living here, why?
