HAIL! ~ part two

I received an email this morning from our good friends, The Gaston Family.

They live about 15 minutes from our house and felt the affects of the crazy hail storm yesterday in a much different way!

Check out the photos Sean sent me:

Sean was home alone (Jamye and the kids were actually on our side of town visiting family, I think) and getting ready to watch the UNC game when the storm started. He said the house started to moan and then the golf size hail came fast hitting the house so hard it caused the damage you see in the above photo to their siding and roof!

We also heard many accounts that a tornado did indeed touchdown in the surrounding areas where we live, doing a lot of damage to homes and barns. It's crazy to think we experienced such weather in's not like we live in Kansas?! We are all very grateful that no one got hurt and that the storm didn't cause more damage then it did.

WOW! I'm assuming the hail did all that damage to the house?? That's incredible. We've had hail storms too but not that bad!

That is unbelievable. I can't believe how much damage the hail did. I called my mom to tell her and she was like oh yeh when i worked in Denver they used evacuate us to the basement when the tornado warning was in effect. I'm like what?? You didn't tell me that.

Oh my god. That is horrible! I feel so bad for them.

Holy Handgranade!


I mean I've always heard that hail could be really destructive but in Utah it's no big deal.


Hail sucks.
