We finally have our power fixed...Last night, we had two hail storms. One was at 7:30PM . The kids and I were at home.. We heard something hitting the roof ,like a popcorn machine, then every now and then, it sounded like someone hitting the roof with a baseball bat.. That lasted about 5 minutes.It seemed longer....After that storm, we looked outside and the yard was covered white in hail. My snon took a plastic bowl and filled it half full with quarter and dime sized hail.. We have it in the freezer now. I have never been in a hail sotrm that left so much hail around.Of course it all melted in about 30 minutes, since it was about 70 degrees outside... We had power all through tat storm, then around 10:30pm, our power all of the sudden went off... Well, we went on to bed.. and I was listening to my little FM radio with the earplugs and then, at about 11:30pm, we had another hail storm come.This one only lasted a couple of minutes, but the rain, thunder and lightening went on, seemed like for an hour, until I finally fell asleep. I couldn't stay up any longer. I got up this morning, the kids rooms had power but the rest of the house did not.. I couldn't get the A/C unit to come on..
When I went to work, the phone was ringing all day. We had about 20 auto hail claim and 10 roof claims just today.. I'm sure there will be more come in, as the week goes on.. We are trying to handle them as quickly as possible.. I'm just so glad no one was hurt , but I feel so sad for the areas that got hit, and the people that had loved one killed.. That is so awful.. My prayers are with those families..
Well, I'll say good night.. It's been a long day.Thanks for all the comments and the concerned E-mails I got. I sure do love my blog buddies..
God bless you and Bunches of hugs!!!
