Let it...hail???

As I was feeding Riley a bottle yesterday afternoon, I decided to watch the local news (well, "local" is relative...our news comes from Shreveport, LA) to see what was going on in the world. During the weather report, we were told that severe thunderstorms were on their way and to be watching for possible hail. I'm pretty sure the last time I saw hail was when I was around 5 years old and we were visiting Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota. Anyway, about 30 minutes later, this is what came from the sky...

Riley and I could not believe our eyes! I have never seen hail that big! I got a couple pictures of the yard afterward.


From snow to hail, we've had some crazy weather in the past month since we arrived in East Texas! After seeing the report today about this years predicted hurricane season, I sure hope we're far enough inland now to not be affected by those!

So can you believe I've posted twice in one week?! Don't get too spoiled by it... :) However, I do plan on posting more next week because while Daniel is in New Orleans taking a class, Riley and I will be visiting my parents in Maryland and I'll have internet access whenever I want it! Maybe I'll do some "catch-up" posting then. I hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. And I was with you when you saw that hail at Mt Rushmore as a 5 year old!!! :) I remember that too! And probably have pictures of it somewhere.... Me and the kids got caught in a bad hailstorm when we lived outside of Orlando... The hail was quartersized and put tons on dents in the hood of my car... It was terrifying to be out IN IT like that... I was waiting for a tornado to show up next... (I watch too many of those shows on twisters) lol
