New weather phenomenon – “grass fall” or rain from hay
The GRU family of the British Motto, Wiltshire, enjoyed a Sunday holiday when they were caught off guard by an unprecedented phenomenon. With a clear, cloudless sky, in the absence of wind, suddenly began to fall dry grass, and then hay, and almost stacks. And they were not the only “victims” – a strange phenomenon has affected many people in the countryside of great Britain.

Gloucestershire, Devon, Wiltshire, Wales, Lancashire – all these regions are geographically located in the Western part of the British Isles, but in reality they are separated by a distance of hundreds of km. The more surprising that the event, christened “grass rain” or “Blizzard of hay”, observed not only in different parts of the country, but also for three days. People called it “the strangest” thing they had seen in their lives, and the details of what had happened were different everywhere. One thing unites them – no other natural disasters have not occurred, write “stopad” on a side effect of a hurricane or a tornado will come.

Somewhere from the sky fell a hundred or two bundles of grass, amused children and Pets. In other places, fresh hay covered the houses, roads and rural infrastructure with a dense layer, giving residents a lot of problems. Accidents and injuries are not recorded, although many admitted that falling from the sky large pieces of hay, the size of a sheet, they were pretty scared. Not everyone understood what was happening – someone ran to hide in the basement, others severely battered the nerves of the police. In the end, all went well, but there were 3 questions.

What was that? Why this happened? Should we be afraid of a repeat of the rain from the grass?

Somewhere from the sky fell a hundred or two bundles of grass
Observers noted that the phenomenon occurred in windless weather, and hay fell freely, it didn’t carry on the district, as at a storm. In one of the towns dry grass surprisingly covered half of the territory, almost flat line dividing the settlement in two. Hay fell not just from the sky, but from a great height, above the flight of gulls, as one fisherman noted. Sometimes the grass swirled in the air for a long time before it fell to the ground.

The origin of the strange “precipitation” found out quickly – hay was from nearby fields, where farmers, using the dry and hot weather, vengeance harvest food for the winter. It is the heat, according to experts, and was the cause of the outlandish phenomenon. Hot ground starts the convection process that gives rise to the ascending thermal streams. They are so strong that birds can soar for hours in the sky without flapping their wings. And pilots of all aircraft, including the largest and heaviest, must learn to maneuver among such flows. What can we say about light, dried blades of grass.

So will the heat, will travelpad? But why no one has faced this before, because the hot days in the past century probably enough? And that’s interesting – the upward flow easily supports the objects flying into it, can raise them to a serious height, but there are no examples that he tore something from the ground. That is, until recently, it all belonged to the “air”, and the ground inhabitants could feel safe. But if now superheated air can send in flight without asking a whole haystack, and other objects are not nailed suddenly acquire the ability to fly? But this is a serious danger and a reason to think about the weather, which we will have to face in the future.
