Oh Hail!

I'm not usually a fan of thunderstorms. Actually, I hate them something fierce. So when we got a super nasty one this afternoon I was not a happy camper. We had hail on three separate occasions, and it was hail bigger than any I've ever seen in my life. Crazy.

See this photo...they were bigger than these.

At one point it had stopped raining and the sun came I went outside to take some pictures of the hail all over the place. And then it happened. Just as I was about to put my hand on the door to go outside there was a bright flash of lightning and instantaneous thunder. Holy moly did I jump and run up the stairs. I was almost fried.

So then I just decided to hang out with the fam in the living room. That was a much better and safer plan. But eventually the skies cleared and I went outside where there were still hail stones on the ground. Here are some pictures from this whacky weather.

This was what our driveway, yard and surrounding area looked like after about 5 minutes of the hail downpour.

I found this little dude in our front yard after the storms were over.

Even more hail stones. They were all over the place!

Do you like thunderstorms? Did you have any crazy (or not so crazy) weather like we did in the past week?
