The next one that came through about three hours later was the one that hurt. Heavy rain pouring down and lots of hail...some pretty big.
|We found some bigger ones later after it quit raining.|
|The rainbow after the storm.|
Once it quit raining we walked out to look at the garden. Not pretty.
|Sweet corn is pretty well stripped. It's fortunate only the last four rows to the right were left to ripen. They may be OK.|
|Was the watermelon patch. Melons may or may not ripen.|
|Cantaloupe...I hope they aren't completely ruined. Littlest grandson loves cantaloupe & these were planted with him in mind.|
|The poor butternut squash. I hope some are far enough long to finish ripening.|
|I'm afraid the tomatoes might be a total loss. They look pretty bruised & will probably rot.|
|The experimental horticultural beans...we may never know what they were supposed to do.|
And finally, more big hail and dented pickup hood (though the dents don't show up that well.)
I hope these storms are done!
