Uprooted, Part Three: Brain Reacts

Uprooted, Part Three: Brain Reacts

In Part One of this four-part blog series, I wrote about how curiously shaken I felt by a recent wind storm that uprooted and snapped trees across Northern New England and left behind a historic power outage. In Part Two, I looked to Mother Nature and a book by forester Peter Wohlleben for answers and found common sense explanations as to how and why the fallen trees were so vulnerable to the wind.

That helped me understand their vulnerability, but it didn’t help explain my heightened sense of vulnerability.
