We had a huge storm producing tornadoes and hail yesterday. Luckily the cars were safely inside! Other folks didn't fair so well.
You can see the hailstone slideshow here (http://www.ksn.com/news/local/story/Large-hail-hits-western-Sedgwick-County/rf6r2QeFr0eBDPT80qAhxA.cspx):

Wow. Glad the car was safely put away. Nothing will destrory a car quite like Hail. Especially stuff that size.

I wonder how many people woke up that morning to cars that were totaled by their insurance. Glad it doesn't hail very often (if ever) in Florida! I only remember it happening once, and the hail stones were smaller than dimes.

Ahh Wichita, gotta love the storm season(s). My brother texted me about this last night... "Golf hail in Wichita fu**!"

I hope the Jeep got covered.

Crazy! We got some storms here last night. Nothing as severe directly in the Twin Cities region, but further out west, near South Dakota, there were tornadoes and hail. It's just odd to see it so late in the season, and it wasn't even that warm yesterday.

Yikes! Gotta love the Midwest. At least the weather is never boring. Lethal, maybe, but never boring.

I'll take boring Pacific Northwest rain over holding a mattress over your head in the hallway with hail coming down and sirens going off any day.

It's quite the experience. I've never actually been tornadoed upon, but they have certainly come close. Hiding in the basement with a mattress is better than riding that mattress out through the hole that used to be your roof.

Nah give me midwest "If you're tired of the weather stick around a day, it'll change" any day. Nothing like having a beautiful summer day change in a matter of hours to a strange reddish/green color sky then go out and spot for tornadoes, then the following day will be beautiful(which helps when you have a mess to clean up!).

I was so bored with PNW weather. I loved the beautiful mild summers, but winter was long and dreary and the type of rain there is the annoying type. It shows up, lingers for a long time, makes things damp, and goes away. Like God took the region and turned it into a big wet towel. Winter in Washington made me want to hang myself. Its the kind of mind-altering depressing weather that makes you want to cuddle up with a mediocre but available girl you would have otherwise brushed off during the clear-headed summer months.


I'd rather see trees falling and clouds funneling. I want a drama. I also could never live in Florida -- I need snow. A brief winter is the reset button that forces people to go into hibernation, contemplate their existence, and start fresh in the spring. Without winter, people go nuts and act like Californians.

At least you have a basement......how about hiding in your closet w/your clothes on top of you..... Or in your laundry room hoping that if you don't get sucked out the roof, that when the roof caves in, the washer and dryer help break the fall instead of your head doing so....

Looks like we may have a new record hailstone in Kansas (yeah, that's what we do when we aren't sitting on the porch with a bug zapper and a 6-pack). 1.1 pounds and has a circumference of 15.5 inches weighed 15 hours after it fell. Imagine the updrafts it took to keep this thing in the air!
