    I hear the oldtimers speak of them. I understand they are an ancient mythical phenomenon, feared by some, but to others brought prosperity. the old ones say that the appearance of the swirling winds signify the beginning of the monetary harvest, the "green season". It is said that large groups would go to the hurricane and stay for extended times, harvesting, living in temporary shelters, towed by oversized vehicles that spewed black smoke. The locals welcomed these weary travelers, for they brought the offer of renewal, and rebuilding. Many of these travelers brought with them their families, passing down their craft to the young ones. It was once said, when the hurricanes did not come, that these travelers would take to mowing lawns, selling objects gathered in their garages, even selling their harvesting tools, in order to survive. Others live off the charity of others in their village until the swirling winds return. Some times the wait was long, but for the travelers, it is their destiny to wait, sitting around the wooden tables of the homes, or taverns, telling stories of the harvests past. We all must remember these stories, for it is up to us to build memorials in our memories of these ancient harvesters, and pass down the stories of the travelers so they will not be forgotten.

    Jim-are you speaking from experience or is this what you have heard?? It sounds like you ought to take up writing short stories this was very good.

    Do you remember hearing back in 2005 that we had entered a ten year cycle of major hurricanes annually?

    wasnt that tied to global warming. Does the past two years mean that there has been no global warming or that global warming is reversing??

    Fifteen TDs 2 cat 5s and 6 weeks to go, this is not a quiet season except in terms of landfalling US storms. Global warming (whatever the cause) doesnot mean every gets warmed everywhere at the same time. It mean different weather patterns. An active cycle does not mean 2005 every season (2005 was a record year in every way). This year we may starve, but we will work again.

    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    The elders know, the swirling wind are always there, outside our world. They come in there own time, when and where they choose.

    They are not quite as creative, but as one supervisor put it, "the only way this  is admissable in court, is as an insanity defense".

    Clever nostalgia piece. If you care to write some sci-fi stories in the off-storm times, I'd be happy to edit for you . . .

    James, et al

    Your best bet may be contacting all the local IA firms that work daily claims to see if they sent any adjusters to CA for the fires (or the mid-west for the hail/wind). If they did, they may be open to some trainees, if their daily adjusters, who don't travel, are swamped.

    Ah, yes.

    The whimsical whirling winds.

    The "small" storms here in the buckle of the tornado belt are usually quite interesting, especially up close.

    And, let's not forget, there is always the chance of little ice balls falling from the sky in the periphery of these "small" whirling winds.
