Non- stop lightening flashes until about 1 am, tons of pea size hail layered the yard. I heard a few larger hail balls hit the various vehicles on the street - hubby's truck included. Had the window open and could hear the "pings" as they hit. Weather radio went off about then for a sever T-storm over SW Denver to include Chatfield Reservoir (and other locations) which put us right in the middle of it. Rained hard and fast, we had puddles and a small stream on our back patio.
Later (and the last alert of the night at about 1:30am) said flood warning since the storm dropped about 2 inches of rain in 45 minutes. I believe it!
Dog finally let me know she was not happy. Normally she would have gone under a bed by now, but she is in the crate. So I went down with her a bit until about 12:50 when things started to settle down. She did not bark after that at all.
Here are some pictures, you will see my lovely planted whiskey barrels took hit. Two are out in the open and two have a bit of roof over hang. Hail piled up to about 6 inches in places it could drift.
We could get a repeat around here today, but it is not going to be as hot, so hopefully will not be as bad. Right now the hail is melting and light fog all over.
As far as I can tell only plant life was damaged, house, fences and truck seem to be ok.
Before the storm:
AWWWW your poor flowers got pummelled! :( and the poor puppy :(
Hopefully the rest of your flowers make it through the rest - take care!!!
Oh my goodness!
Oh my...your poor posies!
So glad there wasn't any damage (aside from your flowers) and I hope you have seen the last of that weather for a good long time!
My goodness - what a storm!
Wow - you had some rough weather! It is absolutely storming here in Cape Town for the past few days, but fortunately no hail storms. Wishing you clear skies!
I feel your pain. All my lovely pansies are kaput. Spent alot of time in the base ment that night!!
Yikes - it sounds like you had a rough night! I'm sorry about your plants :(
