Check out these pictures from a storm we had here a couple of weeks ago. Boy that wind was blowin'! I thought the Bradford Pear tree might snap in half...but no such luck (I'm not a fan of the ever popular Bradford Pear, I'm afraid). The very next time I see that blasted Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel acting all excited and disturbed over a piddly little Tropical Storm down south, I'm sending him these pictures.
I've been through a few Tropical Storms. This little thunder/hail storm put them to shame. (Now a hurricane? That's a whole other matter....)
Here's Randey holding a little piece of hail from that storm.
Luckily, our vehicles didn't receive any damage. Kaleb's on the other hand, was beat up pretty badly. (I kept meaning to take pictures, but I forgot!) He was at work during the storm. It's amazing how much damage was done to his car while ours escaped scot-free - and they were parked only 4 miles apart! That hefty little insurance check he received help ease his pain just a bit, though....he is his father's child, after all.
