  1. I was in Denver on Sunday, one day before the hailstorm. For an hour I watched the planes “corral” clouds into a hamburger shape, then (after I went inside) there were massive downdrafts and a fierce thunder storm. Workers at the arena said it was the most powerful wind they’d experienced in their lives, blowing big machinery across the parking lot. The next day they created the hailstorm the same way, bet on it. How and why (morally) do the pilots do this?
