Very Strange Storm

We had the strangest storm today. It started off a little overcast. Andy went out to mow. Within a few minutes the wind was really blowing and it was really dark outside. I did not know the mower could go so fast. It was really funny to watch Andy try to finish before the storm. A few minutes later our power went out. I went to tell Andy to come in, but he was already headed back to the garage. As the garage door was shutting, we were hearing this strange sound. It was hail pounding against the garage door. Andy barely made it in. I have never seen so much rain and hail in such a short period of time. I would bet we had 1-2 inches in about 5 or 10 minutes. Then it was over. The sun was shining the rest of the day.

Our street NEVER gets water all the way across it.
We have lived here 7 years and this was a first-
really strange because it only rained for about 5 min.

Caroline does not like to get wet!

We've had some very strange weather of late in CANADA as well... with many tornado sightings.
