Golf Ball Sized Hail by Sublivious
We had a pretty big storm last night. We usually have a big one every year. The first year we bought our house we had a storm with wind and hail that caused us to get a new roof.
Last year we had huge amounts of hail damage done to both of our cars. Cory's truck was at home and I got caught in the middle of the hail storm while trying to make it home before the tornadoes came through our area.
This year took us a bit by surprise! We weren't expecting it to be as big of a storm as it was last night. We figured we'd get a lot of rain and some wind but maybe next time we should take a look at the news.
Before the Storm by FW Sunshine
Our area received pea to golf ball sized hail. Thankfully our cars didn't get any damage and there wasn't any visible damage I could see when I walked out to my car to go to work. I was not, however, expecting the call I received from Cory this evening!
I thought at first he was playing some sick joke...One of the many reasons I fell in love with our house are the huge beautiful trees. One in the back and three in the front.
He said the storm got the one in the backyard...This is what I came home to! I am so upset!
My beautiful 20 yr old tree!
On the upside it did a lot less damage than it could have done if it had fallen in a different direction. It tore up a small portion of our fence and ripped off about four or five feet of our neighbors gutter. The back of our house did not receive any damage.
Now we just need to figure out how to get it out of our backyard.
