I can’t believe how many people have come to look at and take pictures of the fallen tree. My street is usually pretty quiet but not tonight!

Scariest storm ever!

So, I’m pretty sure I just experience the scariest storm I’ve ever encountered in my life. It was brief but it was truly frightening. I knew a storm was coming and the sky looked very ominous but I wasn’t expecting this. I am so glad I was at home and not driving as for a couple of minutes I literally couldn’t see anything but water. We also had some hail so it looked like it had snowed in places but of course, it rapidly disappearing. The street lights in front of my place went off for a few minutes but my electricity stayed on the whole time. One of the chairs on my balcony literally flew from one end to the other. Trees were swaying but I didn’t notice until things had calmed down that a huge tree at the other end of my building to fallen onto a parked vehicle, blocking the street. Anyway, I’m glad that the storm is over and it’s now just lightly raining.

Hail on the roof and ground.
