Major storm front moved through this afternoon…60+ mph winds, golf ball sized hail and about 30-45 minutes of serious rain!
Here is a view of the back through a window…look at the hail!
Looked like odd sized granular snow. The wind was whipping it around everywhere, so our covered 8′ wide deck is also covered in hailstones and pecan tree leaves. Pot plants were blown around and knocked off the deck, but it doesn’t look like we sustained any major damage to the house/roof.
The garden got pretty beat down…and the yard, onion field became lakes. The tomato plants were loaded. Guess we’ll see if they spring back.
See the ridge running along the top of the picture…looks like a wall. That’s the runoff from the street to the field.
Of course, that’s coming out of our side yard and off the street. It’s headed to the Bayou which is right below the water at the top of the photo.
It’s so low, that this much water won’t really make a difference. It would need to pour about 8″ in an hour up north of Burkett for the Bayou to come down.
This was the street during the rain…by the time we could get out and Ernie went wading, it had already come back down to within the roadbed instead of up in the yards.
We’re so thankful for the rains and prayerful that there is no more storm excitement for tonight!
