Hail Storm


Aunt Martha said...

Hi Abby:

That was really a big hail storm!

I know it sounded extremely loud over the phone while I was talking to you. It was hard to hear you sometimes on the phone because of the noise!

It's hard to believe that much hail can come down like that and totally cover the streets and yards that quickly.

What great pictures you got of the hail storm. The sound effects really added to the impact of your photos. I have never seen a hail storm that dramatic. Thanks for sharing.

WOW! As Ian would say "Ho-yee, Mo-yee!" (Holy Moly!)

We hardly ever have hail in Kansas. We get tornadoes instead...

Hi Abby,
I'm the Gran of The Dukes and I live a few miles from you. We did get some hail today, but not nearly as much at that! When we moved here in 1989 I was amazed at that amount of hail in one short storm! I still am amazed!

I love the close up photo of the hail that you took.

I am always surprised how living just a few miles away from you ( west ) we got NO hail.

Denver really does have unpredictable weather.

Hey, Abby--

Impressive pictures!

How large were the hailstones?

Does the hail damage solar panels on your house?

It's good to be inside during such a storm! And it's also good to have a car in the garage rather than outside.

Thanks for sharing.

Much love,

YeYe F.

The hail stones were marble size.
I don't think the hail will damage solar panels.

Wow! That was an amazing hail storm. I don't think we've ever had one quite that ferocious here in Northern VA. Your pictures and video really made me feel like I was there. I always love when you create a new post for you blog.
