Severe Wind, Lightning and 2" of Hail- What a Difference a Day Makes!



Severe Wind, Lightning and 2" of Hail~ What a Difference a Day Makes-
After 63 degrees Sunday we were treated last night to 45mph (or more!) winds, 2 " of pea-size hail and the longest lightning storm I've ever seen! Maybe 2 HOURS, it was WILD!!! I saw the storm coming, with a black sky and put the hens in early. We had no major tree damage and the rain barrel is full, after I righted it after getting blown over. Luckily I flipped our glass topped patio table upside down. That would have flown across the yard or through a window :(  Crazy Spring weather!!!


 4" of hail up against the sliding glass door-






Not much left this morning, lots of unsettled weather today- sun, rain, clouds, snow. It will be about 35 tonite, so we'll bundle up. Right now kitty and I are sitting in the sun~~~

Good grief. That's the kind of excitement most of us can do without. Glad you stayed cozy and didn't lose power.

Wow. I think our temps will take a dip in a day or so too. Glad everyone is okay and the hail didn't damage anything.
