I thought we had made some progress with Tango and thunderstorms but we have taken one heck of a step backwards tonight. I wasn’t sure if our house was going to remain standing. The rain and hail were coming down so hard and so fast that it was moving horizontally and driving towards our windows. At the peak I thought for sure I was going to hear glass breaking. The wind was so strong that it picked up our deck umbrella, inflated it and sailed it across the back of the house. The eavestrough and down spouts were so overwhelmed with the volume that it just poured out like huge waterfalls. When I thought the worst of it was over there was a huge bolt of lighting and all of a sudden our stereo turned itself on and the volume was at the maximum….how weird is that??? Poor Tango was just crouched low to the ground looking for somewhere to hide. When the hail stopped I grabbed my video camera and got these pictures of the damage to my garden and the huge piles of hail.
