Stormy Weather

You have probably heard about the storms that occurred in the south. Where I live, we received hail and thunderstorms. There was unconfirmed tornadoes (I think I heard two or three). The death toll in my area is 16. So very sad. School (work) was called off today and also in the neighboring counties. Greene County got hit the hardest. The devastation is horrible!

Here is a sample of what we received last night:

That's a hail stone in the middle!

I spent the night in the basement. L stayed upstairs. The sound was absolutely scary! But we are safe! There was damage to our house. We are going to have to replace the siding. (On the bright side, maybe we can have a different color!) One of our windows was broken. That was pretty much the extent of the damage. Our neighbor had two windows broken as well as the siding being blasted. Our neighbor two doors up had about a fourth of their siding torn off the side of their house. The siding was in the neighbors' yard across the street.

Reports are that this is the worst storm since the early 1970s. I wasn't living in the area at that time. This is the worst storm I have ever lived through, that I remember.

If you are in the south, I hope all is well with you. Please pray for all those who have lost family members and for those who will need strength to clean up after the storm.


  1. Wow! That is amazing. I have never seen (and hope to never see) hail that big! Glad you guys are okay.

  2. So glad you're sounds so scary. We had a tornado warning today but I don't think any actually touched down.

  3. Glad to hear you guys are safe and sound!
