We had a huge storm pass through town last night! The hail was just under golf ball size it was insane! We where eating dinner and I had to move the kids to the mini picnic table in the middle of the kitchen just in case the windows broke it was hitting so hard. We couldn't hear each other talking it was so lound in the house. The winds where above 90KmH (55Miles +), I don't know how my trees held on the tops of them where no lie touching the ground they where bend so much! there where a few funnel clouds in our area but none offically touched down, if they did it was for a breif second. It was really hot and muggy all day and the storm hit real fast I have never seen clouds move in that quick! We where lucky damage wize, our van has a few dints in it, our shutters are pretty dinted the trees in our yard and shredded and some of the kids plastic toys as well as the lid to thier outside toys box was shredded. We don't have vinal siding (composite wood) so we fared better then our neighbors did there is alot of damage to vinal siding on houses in town and in our area, a house around the corner got thier windows smashed out, there are trees down everywhere, some power lines are down, the highway that goes through town got shut down do to debris, trees and accedents. My in laws place got hit hard, the entire back of their house, shed, garage and hot tub house needs to be replaced, the windshield on thier car was smashed and they got dints in thier truck and other vehicals. My brother in laws house needs to be resided as well (I am so glad we don't have vinal siding!) (my in laws and BIL are out on acreges) All crops are down in our area, shredded to pieces...not good! We had a friend over and he video taped when it was hitting hard so I will post that video when he posts it. It was insane!!
after it had calmed down a bit, when it was full force wind and hail we couldn't see a foot in front of the window, our street was like a river of water and ice balls.
we used a nickle for size comparison.
