As you can see by the photo we experienced a bit of sizeable hail today!
As I left the house to do a couple errands I noticed that the sky to the north of us was dark. Very dark. I gave it a good once-over, then decided to run my errands anyway.
Stopped at the farm supply store and bought a small table for the front deck. It had been on sale and I finally decided "I want it!"
Then to the grocery store and onward to my Mom's where I dropped off a couple things. It was starting to sprinkle.
On the way home I decided NOT to stop for that one last errand but instead hurry on home and get the car in the garage. I parked it safely inside, got out, grabbed a bag of groceries out of the back seat and heard a loud "THWACK" on the garage roof. Then another! And another! Looked out the window and saw very large hail.
Thankfully, it was rather sparse and it stopped within a minute or so. And I am thankful the car was parked safely in the garage.
I hope the farms around us did not experience damage to their crops! Hail can do devastating damage to a corn or bean field.
