A couple of days ago, we had a little surge of "severe" weather.  We had tornado warnings all over the place...  people freaking out and constant weather casts on tv.  Our meteorologists had a great time that day.  :)

Anna knew something was coming.  She got her knee-high socks and (pink) "Wizard of Oz" shoes on for the occasion.  Then went outside to take a look at the clouds complete with a lightning rod in her hand.
She wasn't happy about her needing to come inside.
Grey was a little anxious.
Our view of the wall cloud...we had a front row seat.  This was the leading edge of the wall cloud that everyone was watching (everyone=the meteorologists).  I wasn't impressed.
She was ready for some storm chasin'!
Anna and I were either hanging out by the front door or in her messy room watching the clouds.
Lots of hail... and there's a road under that river in the background.
This wasn't the largest of the hail..just one that Anna picked up to eat.
This piece was about the size of a ping-pong ball.
And as always, a great sky to follow the storm.

Wow, that's some hail all right. Is your roof okay?

Ashley said...

yeah, it hailed for like 30 minutes straight, i think. forever, it seemed. how knows about the roof, but i doubt it's in fabulous shape after that.

i meant "who" not "how... and they had to get the snow plows out on the loop and interstate to keep people from sliding on the hail. there were still a few wrecks.
