Holy crap what a storm that was last night. 12 minutes of some of the most violent lightening, thunder, hail and rain I’ve ever experienced here. Ever. Even came close to topping the list that includes the Iowa storms. Wow. And in the middle of the night too. Very dramatic. The layer of white hail that covered the cul-de-sac had melted by sunrise and all that was left to tell the story was a thick salad of shredded leaves on the sidewalks.
