It was not just a storm. The following day it was declared a tornado. I never want to be in one again. I was coming home from running an errand that evening, and I was driving home when the hail started. I stopped the car and waited, hearing the hail hit and the winds blowing. I felt vulnerable
looking like a scaird mouse, but saying my prayers. I could imagine my car door opening and me flying through the air. I made it home fighting the large amount of rain on the streets. It was not a good sight when I got there, so many trees had fallen. It lasted no more than 1/2 hour, but what a mess it made. I hope never to go through that again.
