Last night, we stopped by the Jacobsen’s to check on their animals, and we noticed some crazy clouds just to the north. This was taken on the road in front of their house (they live just up the street from us).
By the time we got home, the clouds had darkened and they completely surrounded the neighborhood.
In a matter of seconds, the wind direction changed and we made it inside just in time for the hail to hit. The hail started out fairly large, about golf ball sized, but fortunately the size quickly decreased. I actually didn’t get a photo of the hail because it rained for quite awhile after it stopped and most of it was melted by the time everything was over.
Rory and I watched out the window, and we actually saw the neighbors trampoline tumble across their yard. For those who know Rory well, she gets so worried about things and by the serious look on her face you could see that she was really concerned. Even today, she keeps talking about the “bad storm.”
Luckily it was all over before long, and nothing around our place was permanently damaged. It made for an interesting evening, though, and we are always glad to get rain.
