Hit hard

Last Sunday night around 10:30-11:00 pm our neighborhood was hit with some pretty terrific winds - possibly even a small tornado. We had hail the size of marbles and leaf debris plastered to the west side of our houses. It was so unsettling it didn't occur to me to take pictures at the time.

The next day I ventured out to this scene just a couple of blocks up the hill after someone posted pics online.

This one tree hit three cars.

It still had two sections of sidewalk, a length of curb, and chunks of pavement attached.

A neighbor who lives south of the boulevard posted these shots on her blog. Mavis, whose house has the tree resting on top of it, is one of our ballet moms.

The hail weakened the gutter on the back of my house and Wednesday a.m., after a brief driving downpour, it fell.

I feel I can scarcely complain though considering others suffered so much damage. Some will be out of their homes for a while till repairs can be done. I know of at least five homes that had damage and lots of trees with broken limbs. Lots of vehicles hit by tree limbs, too.

Your pictures are impressive too. What a night!


Oh Wow! You really did get hit hard! I am not sure where you are, but I guess we had some terrific winds and tornados in Ohio too. We were in Vermont at the time.
