It hailed here today. It's hailed about five significant times since we've lived here. I think everyone in the neighborhood has a new roof now.
What made today's storm different was that our neighbor's palm tree was struck by lightning. We saw a bright flash in our house, then before we could brace ourselves for the Crack! of thunder, we heard what sounded like a cannon go off.
Palm tree pieces were all over our backyard and all the hairy parts underneath the tree bark were exposed the full length of the tree.
Good thing we had just turned all the computers off or I wouldn't be typing this right now.
