Maybe the punch was only a little in Hall County, but I was a block away from the fireworks tent in Dawson County at that time with my outdoor art show of oil paintings. This area of Dawson County received 60 MPH winds with hail for 15 minutes. It was relentless. I lost 1,000's of dollars in damaged inventory even though I salvaged 85% of total inventory. Trees and metal signs snapped like toothpicks. I was in the storm and beat up with the hail and items flying through the air to the point of bruises on my body. That storm had a punch. See my article I just posted titled: Dawson County Good Samaritans. Al Brown
