After the Storm

It was a beautiful day yesterday.  The sky was perfectly clear and I shrugged off the forecast of possible storms headed our way.  When I checked the radar map on the computer, I saw nothing to be concerned about.

But later in the day, when the sky to the north began to look threatening, I went back to the computer and was startled to see a Severe Storm Warning informing us that damaging winds and hail would be upon us in ten minutes.  We barely had time to bring the horses in before the storm hit.

We were hit by not one, but two storms and when it was over we had two trees down on our pasture fence, and several trees down or damaged along our road.  My poor flowers took quite a beating from the hail, and I am not sure all of them will recover.  I had taken some photos of them earlier in the day, which is a good thing, as they may not look this good for a while!

  3. The weather you are having seems so extreme. Is it the usual type of weather for you or is it out of the ordinary?

    • We are not as prone to violent storms as states to the west of us, but we do usually get a few during the course of the summer. They used to freak me out, but I have become used to them now and take them in stride.

    • We were fortunate they moved through so quickly, or there would have been more damage. Fortunately, we and our animals were safely under cover before they hit.
