Well yesterday it started to rain and the news was predicting bad storms.
Well.... it started to rain and I made the mistake of doing what I always do...
I say out loud come on rain lay it on me.
Pour down on me PLEASE!!!!! (we do not get rain often so it usually does not work.)
Well.... I had to bite my tongue because I got a little more than I expected.... HAIL!
We had 2 massive storms in less than 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
The first storm lasted about an hour and power was out for a little while.
It pelted us hard and was exciting to watch. Cat was scared to death.
Can you see the elephant in these storm clouds?The second storm lasted about 30 mins I think.
It did cause damage around the neighborhood.We in Phoenix rarely see bad storms.
It broke skylights, dented vehicles, broke windshields, power was out for hours.
I had to go out in this one when the hail let up just enough so that I could go out and move the van to the covered part of the driveway. (being that I just got my license this past February.. I did real well. Being that I have never driven on ice... I got so proud of myself saying I have driven on ice and did not have issues. LOL)
Unfortunately it was not moved before damage occurred. The hood of the van looks like a golf ball as the indentions are big.
It had huge hail ... I have never seen them this big. Two pigeons lost their lives in the storm. (One in this pic... along with the ice I had to drive on)
