I couldn't believe a tiny lake in Missouri could have squalls but look how big it actually is compared to our lakes:

/\......if I were guessing that lake is likely either the direct result of or has been heavily influenced by US Army Corps of Engineers damming or other related navigable water project activities; I've seen some of them close up (Nebraska, Texas and Florida) and many are truly marvels of man made ingenuity and engineering which in some cases so profoundly change the natural landscape that they indeed create their own micro-climate events such as the squalls mentioned above.

Yes those are all man-made lakes. That part of the country has tons of them and they’re humongous.

Know it all.

A shout out from Forbes. Some standards but also some very new mentions
