After the Storm

Last Friday night, Southwestern Wisconsin had some strong storms roll through with golf ball size hail, winds in excess of 65 mph and rain....ohhh how did rain. There were a lot of crops destroyed, along w/ homes and buildings damaged. In the county where we live, they used snow plows to remove the hail from the highways!

My sister, Laurie lost her vegetable garden, an apple tree and her flowers . She has an amazing green thumb--her yard is GORGEOUS so this is quite a loss. They also received moderate damage to their home. The hail came at an angle with such force she has holes in her siding and the 'grit' from the shingles on the roof was laying on the front sidewalk.

We live about 45 miles east of them and all we had has rain and a little wind. Dani, my 16 y/o daughter, was outside right after the rain stopped and the sun was setting. The sky was amazing to look at after the storm.
