The Hail Storm and an UPDATE....
look at all that hail...I did not mound that up like that either, that is how it was when I walked out the front door.
When you live in Alabama, you know there is going to be some strange and often wild weather. Well yesterday was no disappointer for us. We made it through 2 tornado warnings with nothing but hail...and I do mean A LOT of hail. When this was hitting the house I thought the roof was going to cave in (it did not) The kids and I hunkered down in the basement while Jack lectured us on the "dangerousness" of the storm. After the storm passed I grabbed the camera and ran outside to see if there was any damage. My neighbors were outside doing the same thing. Looks like we all made it without any damage...hard to tell though cause all the hail had not melted off the roof before it was dark. We had a good laugh though because the news reports said we received nickel size hail...I don't think I would describe it as nickel size...perhaps softball???? I posted a few pictures of it, but the pictures do not do it any justice. I did scoop some up in a bag and put it in the freezer though (thanks Jill for that idea). Looks like we should have a calm weather day today.
And now for the UPDATE:
I received "the" phone call yesterday :) Jason gave me his ETA and I booked my hotel room. So not too much longer and I get to go get my man !!! :)
Because of this being a public blog I am not going to put the dates on here. I am sure you can all understand that :)
I will keep you posted though so keep checking back in!
love to all,
