We Had a Hail Storm Today

Today we were suppose to have showers, most of the afternoon. Around 4:00P it finally started to rain and the winds were really strong. Some of our neighbors have tree limbs down in their yard, that fell during the storm. For a little while, I could hear hail stones hitting the metal around our chimney and against the front window. This storm hit pretty hard, but it only lasted for about fifteen minutes. The white things in our neighbor's yard are milk jugs, that blew all over the place. She uses them for her plants.

@aureliah I don't mind a little wind, but hate to be out when it's raining or we're having lightening!

That's terrible! Ice is powerful, when it's falling because of a storm.

@kobesbuddy The ice stones were pretty big and very fast. Five years ago we had a lot of damages the stones were as big as golf balls.

Good thing that the storm was of short duration. I like your backyard.
