Where I have been the past 2 days...

We had a lovely hail storm Wednesday...
This is our backyard about 25 minutes after the storm. It was about 75 degrees so half of the hail had already melted at this point.
This was the average size of the hail that pelted us...it had melted quite a bit already
The center white part is a tad smaller than a golf ball
The little one is one of the smallest ice rocks thrown from the sky
***Warning feetsies coming up....
How ridiculous is the size of these half melted pieces of hail
It attacked my poor truck....this is my side view mirror
Just a few of the dents in the hood
Can you believe it...the hail came down so hard it actually shattered the paint on the hood here
The shed didn't fair well either
this is a 3 1/2 inch hole in the roof of the shed
One of the small holes in the roof
Baseball size hole in the tool shed
These are some of the pieces I was still finding 45 minutes after the storm ended
So needless to say we have been cleaning up broken glass, patching holes, fixing fence pieces and generally cleaning up the aftermath. The worst it taken care of so I should be able to get back to posting.

Did anyone else get these freak storms?

  1. whoa, that's scary! Yesterday it rained so hard it sounded like my apartment building was being powerwashed but nothing like giant hailstones. Hope everything gets cleaned up okay!

  3. Wow!  I'm glad you didn't get hurt by any of those hailstones.   I hope your insurance company does the right thing.  The photo of your tanned foot with summery nail polish on it next to the large hailstones showed an interesting contrast.  I hope the cleanup goes easily.

  4. Wow! those are big. I'm just glad that none of you guys were hurt.  I don't think we've ever had hail that big that I remember of. We've had some wacky crazy storms.  I hope you guys get all cleaned up ok. :)  *squishes you all*

  7. Ugh, that's horrible! I'm hoping it was just stuff that got damaged, and that no one was hurt. Hail is nasty stuff!

  9. Wow how big are those hailstones!  Sorry about the damage to your property, that sucks!  Love the Zoya Tanzy polish.  Lol you've not got flinstone feet, they're quite cute actually, especially with that pink polish.

  10. I've never seen hail that large! I remember when my cousin first moved to Dallas there was a hail storm with hail like you had.  He'd never seen hail like that either.  He had just bought a new car and thought nothing of trying to put it somewhere to be safe.  His car was dented badly.  Be careful with your cute little tootsies and the glass.

  11. Wow! We had some wicked nasty thunderstorms here, but nothing like that! Girl, sorry you had to go through that.
    As an aside, I was lol'ing over the flinstone feet - hubby always calls my feet that! We're foot twins.

  12. Those ice rocks are really scary!! I'm sorry for the damage you suffered, luckily no one got hurt.

  13. OMG I haven't seen a hail storm like that in years! I'm glad you're ok!

  14. Hi Sweetie! Somehow I missed this post! Wowza, you sure got some freaky weather, huh? Sorry about all the damage, I hope it's all cosmetic and minor. I <3 that you call your toes 'Flintstone toes', I totally say that I have 'Flintstone feet' all the time, lol! I love my Flintstone feet, I find them charming. Ok, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. We don't often get hail here in Southern California, but on the few occasions that we have, it hasn't been nearly as large as the baseball sized rocks you're showing, that's for sure! Hope everything is ok and all is back to normal. *hugs*

  20. I wish some of the bigger ones hadn't shattered when they broke through the roof, I would've liked to have seen just how huge they were.
