Friday’s Storm

IMG_2939

On Friday, we got a lot more rain and hail. The hail we got this time was smaller than before- about quarter size.

The smaller hail caused more damaged to the crops and some of the plants in the garden.(it shredded the corn leaves and flattened our squash and lettuce.)

There was so much water that the ditches couldn’t hold all of it. Elisabeth and I found two small waterfalls like this one where the water was spilling over the top of the culverts.

We didn’t really need all the rain, but the clouds afterwards were quite pretty!

Sunday’s Storm

DSCN9644

On Sunday we had a terrific thunderstorm! We had been hoping for some rain, but we weren’t really expecting this…

The hail came down so fast and hard that we could barely hear each other above the din!

None of us had ever seen hail this big! It was a bit bigger than golf balls.

The wind and hail took a lot of leaves off the trees, but I don’t think it damaged the crops too bad.

After the storm cleared away, the sun came out and started to dry the ground up. 🙂
