Hail Storm...

Last night we had a really BIG hail storm! With hail the size of quarters, weighing anywhere from 5 - 11 grams. It was so amazing! My dad said that he has never seen hail that big before!

About 5 hours before it hit!!


This picture isn't very good! I took it at about 12:03 AM.

My mom took this video. You can't really see anything but you can sure hear it!
We got so much water that of course it flooded a couple of the rooms in our basement.

Hail!
More hail



Damage


I'm so sad! After hours of planting ,and watering the corn it's all ruined! :(
This tomato plant didn't do well either!
Watermelon
Squash(or pumpkins). Look at those holes!
Sad!
You can't really tell, but this is the imprint of the hail!
Leafs and branches EVERYWHERE!
I got this off of Weather underground -
