Storm hit

Last night we had quite a storm in the area. The weather service interrupted the television to warn us that high winds and quarter sized hail was on the way. We could already figure something was up by the way the clouds looked. In fact, James interrupted my phone call from the church secretary to let me know we needed to move all of the flower pots and garden toys (mostly the solar lights)undercover. This is always a big deal and thankfully something we haven’t done for quite a few weeks. Anything that could be ruined by hail comes under the short porch, and if it is really delicate it comes into the garage.

The storm turned out to be pretty high winds and lots of places in town had trees break off. Mostly though they were trees that should have been cut or trimmed up long ago. Our Ash trees lining the west of the yard did a very nice job protecting us from the brunt of it.

I snapped a few pictures with my phone and I will try to upload them into the post, but I won’t hold my breath. One of them shows the lettuce bed after it was over, so you can get an idea of the amount of water we had.
