If a desert thunderstorm can do this to a semi-trailer, what do you think will happen to a heliostat or stirling engine support pole?

Reported first at the Guzzler, this fast moving thunderstorm caused major damage to
Highway 395, causing major traffic diversions. By the way, 395 is the road right by the proposed Ridgecrest Solar Millennium project. The politicians and their carbonmentalist allies may along with the solar and wind barons, get their projects built, but mother
nature may have the last word.

This is an amazing video.

An awed Morongobill.
