tornadoes in greensburg

Yesterday a tornado touched down just outside of Greensburg. Fortunately it broke up before it was able to destroy my house, but it still dumped little icy cauliflowers:

That's big hail.

I was at work in Ohiopyle all day, so I missed out on the fun. But my drive home was made considerably shorter by dead traffic signals:

There were no circuits and flashing lights telling people what to do, and the world didn't explode. Amazing. I wish they would just leave the damn things off.

Zach sent out an email with the course description for the Michaux Mash, or more accurately, the YMCA Daycamp Mash. I'm pumped. I can't wait to get out there and go fast.

It's going to be about 4.3 miles of twisty single track. With such short laps and four hours of racing, it's going to get wild once people start lapping each other. But if we use a chip timing system like last year it shouldn't be too stressful for the people counting laps.
