Oh Hell! Hail!

It's 6 p.m. on Wednesday when I am writing this. We have a terrible storm in Austin right now! I thought the windows were going to get knocked out. Don't worry. The tornadoes are gone and the hail has stopped but the rain and lighting continues. Right now Mark is driving back from Georgetown through the very heart of the storm. He should be here any second. I hope he (and the new car) are injury free.

Here are some pictures from my front and back yard. It looks like it snowed but it's golf ball sized hail. The 'grass' that you see in the picture is not grass. It is, in fact, tree branches and leaves from the oaks in our yard. I'm pretty sure that we won't have to hire a tree trimmer this year!
This is our driveway (above).

This is the street in front of our house(above)! Looks like it snowed. The green stuff is also the street. Just debris from the tree!


  1. Were the siren's going off upstairs? ;) No kidding I'm glad you are safe and Mark makes it home soon. I'm sure the pups were crazy scared.

    Love you.

  2. Hail Sucks! Glad you made it! Hope your new ride and Mark made it okay too!

  3. Please tell me you didnt get hail damage on your new car...


Thanks for reading!
