Derecho A shelf cloud along the leading edge of a derecho photographed in Minnesota A derecho (/dəˈreɪtʃoʊ/, də-reh-choh, from Spanish: derecho [deˈɾetʃo], "straight") is a widespread, long-lived, straight-line wind storm that is associated with a land-based, fast-moving band of severe thunderstorms. Derechos can carry hurricanic or tornadic force and can deliver torrential rains and perhaps flash floods as well as strong winds. Winds convection-induced take on a bow echo (backward "C") form of squall line, forming in an area of wind divergence in upper levels of the troposphere, within a region of low-level warm air advection and rich low-level moisture. They travel quickly in the direction of movement of their associated storms, similar to an outflow boundary (gust front), except that the wind is sustained and increases in strength behind the front, generally exceeding hurricane-force.

Infinity Pools Incredible Infinity Pool in Bali. Photo credit: Sean McGrath It’s the middle of a blistering hot summer in the United States, so taking a dip in the cool water of an infinity pool sounds heavenly. The design of infinity edge pools are visually stunning, as the swimming pool appears like the edge vanished and the pool stretches into the horizon or to infinity. The design concept of infinity pools originated in France, but the very expensive vanishing edge swimming pools are usually found nowadays in gorgeous locations like exotic resorts or exclusive estates.
Crater Lake is the clearest lake in the world A large reason for the water's clarity is because Crater Lake has no inlets or tributaries. Located in southern Oregon, it is completely fed by precipitation such as rain and snow. At a depth of 1,949 feet, Crater Lake is also the deepest lake in the United States. The world's next-clearest lake is Russia's Lake Baikal, which also happens to be the deepest lake on Earth! It's so clear that scientists can see clearly 142 feet deep into the water. In most lakes, you can't see clearly for more than about 16 feet deep.
