We Really Got Hail

Rainbow Before the StormIMG_0431I was out driving around when the hail started Tuesday. It didn’t start with small bits or heavy rain; it went strait from light sprinkle to huge heavy hail that made me fear for my windows. I quickly felt like I was being pelted by a machine gun of hail. I pulled over next to a particularly tall bougainvillea bush that I thought might at least give my car some modicum of help. This was not effective.

Next, I decided I had to find some real cover. I soon found an empty carport where I was able to wait out the hail. Afterward I saw that some of the hail in the road were ping pong ball size. Now my car looks like a red golf ball.

It was the craziest storm ever! I couldn't believe the hail. Luckily we weren't hurt. Unfortunately, it was the last straw for the roof (which incidentally is not made of straw. Looks like we're going to have to get a new roof... like it or not.

That's incredible to have hail so huge. It's amazing your car wasn't pocketed. So sorry about your roof. Bummer!
