A Freak Spring Hail Storm—-Sunday, May 8, 2016

Early Saturday morning, around 3-or 4, I don’t really remember now.  We had a terrible hail storm

Hail-1It came in swath straight from the south

Hail-2

Tearing through the farm yard and damaging the trees

Hail-3We have little leaves stuck everywhere.

Although, we feel we were lucky because none of the plants set out under freeze covers were damaged, the covers stayed in place…and the corn is not up in the fields.

Saturday-MorningThe sunrise looked like this!  Stunning isn’t it?

Then the rain clouds came back in…only rain clouds.  We are still changing water through all of this rain, mud and cold.  Irrigation doesn’t stop once we start.

Saturday-eveningBy sunset Saturday evening the clouds started parting.  It was glorious!

Today is cold and only partly cloudy.  Once more I’m very thankful the corn isn’t up yet and my covered tomatoes and other things are still doing fine.

Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

  1. I’m happy to learn that you didn’t have any damage to your crops due to the hail. When I first saw the picture of your siding I thought you were showing holes caused by hail, so I’ glad it was only leaves stuck to the house. Your sky photos are beautiful.

  3. Wow! I don’t think I’ve ever seen hail here or if we did, it was so small we called it sleet. That’s amazing.

    Happy Mother’s Day, Linda!

  4. Happy Mother’s Day Linda….glad to hear it didn’t do too much damage. The winds here this year have been brutal. I planted my garden but I think it’s scared to come up.

  5. Wow! That must have been some hail. I think it is scariest when it is dark and you can’t see the hail well. As all have said, I’m glad crops weren’t in. That would have been devastating. Did you get any structural damage to your house or vehicles?
