Man, we had a storm come through last night, only lasted 10-15 mins, but it was a rough one. Heavy lightening/thunder, strong winds, then came pee to marble sized hail, then heavy rains for about 5 mins.

After the 15 mins or so, it was all gone and sky got blue again, but the debris... WOW. leaves, branches, etc everywhere

I was working at mom's, I parked Tahoe in side drive. Went to leave at 8:30, no go. Good size tree had fallen over drive so that's my tonight's job. Good thing Tahoe was parked back in drive or could've gotten some damage. I had to drive mom's motorhome so I could get home.

I love the trees, but those big ole Cottonwoods and locust up near house can be scary in heavy winds.

Yea, this one hit before I knew what happened. Working the garage doing some framing, heard thunder, then next thing I know downpour of hail.

My wife was home, she was worried the hail would break our plastic sky light in the FR.

 

most of our hail was about 3/8-1/2, but almost instant white.

I got lucky, as the storm down here broke up just a couple miles away.  I saw a single hail stone hit my sidewalk.  Pretty darned windy, but very minimal tree twiglet scattering.  The storm up your way was quite strong, and another heading into Ky now, towards Frankfort/Lexington.

Glad to hear no one was hurt.  We heard some thunder yesterday afternoon but the storm passed to the north of us. I just took out 2 trees that were questionable.  sure hope the rest hold up.

We've had unusually strong winds for the last three days, but luckily, no precip. Gets below zero at night and up to around +8 in the day. A few trees are coming down but with few leaves on them it's not as dangerous as when they're top heavy.

Cut up my tree last night, it was about 10-12" across the base were it broke, still about 6-8' trunk standing. Looks like maybe a branch on the side got broke a few year ago and then it rotted the inside, then it broke at that area.

Weather patterns sure are getting screwy.
