Storms Roll In

Michigan has some weird weather extremes and April is a month of change in this state. The last few days have been warmer than the norm and severe weather paid us a visit this at around 1240 p.m.

Most of the hail was around 1.25" with some around 1.75" or golf ball size. Note the large spiked on I placed on the post. It was interesting to watch the hail come in and all the birds flying out ahead of the hail storm. A few birds could be seen dropping out of the sky after being hit by the hail. By far this was one of the largest hailstorms I have been in many years.

Damage to my truck was limited to a small star on the windshield glass and only a few notable dents to the hood. Some cars in the parking lot had more obvious dents to them.
