1958 Tornado Victims' Memorial

 

If a snowball and a bus…

I learned an important, hands-on physics lesson my senior year in high school. A small cooler full of snowballs on the front seat, with a capable wingman, makes for a great mobile snowball fight. When you realize your good friend (and physics teacher) should be returning to town driving his empty school bus, the thinking cap gets pulled down a little too tightly, if you know what I mean. I still have a clear memory of Mr. Kauffman with a big smile on his face, waving broadly across the windshield…

As I was reminded on every physics exam for the remainder of that academic year, a snowball from a car traveling 55 mph turns into a 110 mph force of nature when it meets the windshield of the oncoming school bus also traveling at 55 mph. Needless to say, the equal and opposite force required to counteract the 110 mph snowball went beyond the structural resistance of the glass (but thankfully, not the safety lamination).

Today, I get to design tornado shelters built to withstand 250 mph flying objects. Thank you for the life lesson, Mr. Kauffman!
