Trees in My Yard.2


P5201643

On May 20, 2006, a sudden hailstorm hit our community, just before the church youth group was to leave on an outing. We were safe in the church buildings, but the cars in the parking lot took a serious beating — deep dents and broken plastic. Some windows were broken out of the educational wing of the church. Many roofs were damaged and had to be replaced.

And the trees were shredded. This photo was taken after the hail had been on the ground for about an hour, having had some time to melt. The pieces were large, and they fell for 12-15 minutes, which is a long time.
