Eye of the Storm

Yesterday, NC was pounded with tornadoes and crazy weather. We were actually very lucky, and were safe through the whole thing. A tornado was reported as touching down just near our home.  We are okay though and no damage to report.

Here is a little video we shot during the storm. Seriously, it was insane.  The hail was like the size of golf balls. After it was all over, we went to check the damage on our cars.  Sure enough, there are little "dimples" all over the hood and roof of our cars from the hail.

I've never witnessed anything like this in my life.  It was insane!

Twenty minutes later... this is what it looked like.


  1. That is crazy! Glad you are all okay!

  2. Oh my goodness!! That is seriously crazy!! I'm so glad that's all the damage you guys had but hail damage on your cars is still a bummer. Wow thanks for the video. AND THANK YOU SO MUCH for the adorable blanket!!! I love love love it and was so surprised to find it in the mailbox saturday!

  3. Hello - amazing storm, so sorry about your cars! That is sad about the hail damage, but just glad you all are safe and sound.

    Tons of hugs!!!
