I was once with a group sea kayaking Prince Edward Island. One day the leader, who had recently taken a course in meteorology for outdoors folks, cancelled the day's trip because he thought he detected incipient signs of a supercell forming.
I didn't believe it so I went out in the surf by myself. No supercell appeared, or even an unsuper one.
The water around PEI is eerily warm. All in all, I'd rather paddle in Wyoming, where I also never saw a supercell.
Impressive. If I saw one those suckers, I'd surely get off the water and take refuge in my Walmart tent.

is as good as anything. Which, of course, means there is no good way to hide from weather like this. Makes me glad I live in the Northeast where we don't see too much of it.
