A few days ago, our area was hit hard by a fast-moving yet hard-hitting hail storm. These sort of things happen in Texas often, but rarely of this size and strength. It was incredible. Our yard was coated with baseball-sized chunks of ice falling from thousands of feet in the air. Most of the cars on our street lost their windows, and ours were no exception. It was a bizarre storm that only lasted a few minutes, but served up an estimated $400 million in damages. These are a few quick shots from our front yard, minutes after the storm passed by. What a crazy night.
