Extreme Thunderstorm!





Saturday evening about 9 pm, a violent storm struck our area.  We got about 2" of rain and hail in a matter of 45 minutes.  Lightening was flashing like a strobe light and there were winds in the range of 80 miles per hour.  The power went out and I really could not see well enough to see what kind of damage the storm did to our property.
These pictures were taken the following morning, when there was still a lot of hail laying around.
Most of my plants were just shredded.
We were without electricity for 40 hours!  It just came back on yesterday!

Wow... that sounds scary! We've had a lot of rain this year, but no violent storms like that. Sorry to hear about your plants!
