WOW! What a night! I had been watching the weather for most of the day and new we had the potential for severe weather. I spent the afternoon cutting weeds in the pasture where I keep Clyde. I had Kennedy with me. I took time to show her a little fuzzy caterpillar I found. She was fascinated by it.
It was church night so I quit in enough time to get me and Kennedy cleaned up. I had to be there by 6. I was so busy getting us ready that I didn't have time to check weather.
As we leave the house it's beginning to sprinkle. By the time we get in the truck and pull out of the driveway it is raining harder. Halfway to church pea to marble size hail begins to sporadically hit my truck. We get to church and get inside just as the bottom falls out! It's a downpour. As the worship team begins to practice we can here hail hitting the roof. We all stop and go to the windows and some go outdoors under the awnings to watch.
Needless to say we started scrambling at church to grab every trash can and any contain to catch water as it began coming through the ceiling throughout the building!
When I got home it looked like a war zone. There were leaves all over the yard and street. One storm window in our bedroom was broken. It will be easier to check for further damage in the morning when its daylight.
I went to the backyard to check the rain gauge and noticed that over 3 hours since the storm I still had hail in my yard and it was still 70 degrees!
I know I'll be busy in the morning contacting our church's insurance and roofer.
Have a good one!
