We just got beat down by a BIG ol' hailstorm.. Yow! Thank goodness the Cadillac was parked under the oak tree as usual, and we had the cover on it. I'm sure the station wagon and pickup took some hail damage from that pounding. (The truck already has dings all over it from a hailstorm I ran into about 5 years ago, so it'll just add to the "character"...)

Here are the other pics I took... notice they are all just outside the back door, since it sounded like BRICKS were raining down on the house, and I wasn't about to venture out past the awning that hangs over the back door. :D

A funny side note.. when the hail started pounding, Arnold was in the bathroom, and he said he at first thought "that noise" was our cat Kayla scratching at the baseboards in the hall like she sometimes does. As it it got louder and louder, he said he started to wonder, "What the heck is she UP TO?"

Put her in the fridge if she keeps it up!!!

OK, I'm done with that joke. Shit, it's been, what, since 2003 since I was over there? Christ.

I do miss extreme weather.

Although, I was snowboarding Tuesday and it was 20C today!!!

MAN. How big are those? They look like someone just went crazy with about 500 trays of ice cubes.

Here in the Emory area, the storm barely rated a medium; all rain, minimal lightning.

Rev: They WERE about ice-cube sized. That's why it was so dang noisy! :D

Tim: You're kidding! I can't believe you didn't get any of this.

Monty: Kayla's new favorite hiding place is empty 15-pack boxes of Guinness. I drop one of the floor, and she darts in and hides in it. :D

I can't believe it either cuz I was tracking that sucker about two hours before it hit. I knew it was going to major, albeit just short of a tornado.

An earlier storm in the week did the same thing; as they approached the perimeter, they opened up and spared central Atlanta. Maybe it's the heat/smog. ;-)

When we went out this morning we found our banana tree and Joseph's coat plant took a real beating... :P They'll grow leaves back eventually, but it sucks to see them so shredded for now.

At least the plants on the lower part of the deck were intact... they were kind of around the corner from the ones that took such a hit, so that gives me an idea of what direction the hail was flying from. And BTW, the cars were fine, surprisingly enough.
