Experiencing a force of nature beyond human control can be both exhilarating and daunting.
It is a rare opportunity to witness or be a part of something that is out of the ordinary, that defies our expectations and challenges our understanding of the world. When people come together to witness or experience an anomaly, there is a sense of excitement and anticipation, as if anything is possible. At the same time, there can also be a sense of fear and uncertainty. It’s like being a kid again!
Whether it is a natural phenomenon, a scientific discovery, or a cultural event, the experience of encountering such an anomaly can be both thrilling and unnerving. But in that moment, we come together and forget everything else. In the video below, some residents in Switzerland could hear a massive mudslide minutes before it happened and gathered to see it play out…
“There was an anomaly when a huge amount of mud came flooding down from the mountains because of hail. People heard the noise 3-4 minutes before, this is why they are waiting, but they were not aware of the amount coming,” the owner said in the caption of the video.
Oh my goodness. I don’t think anyone could have seen that coming! I can’t imagine seeing such a thing in person. But if I were present, I’d be standing back a lot farther than that! This just reinforces that nature can be so beautiful yet so scary at the same time.
See the avalanche in the video below!
