It's raining in Texas. And that is always worth reporting!
Actually, last night I watched an episode of Criminal Minds -- a psychopath show that I've seen intermittently and am NEVER watching again. It was really awful I don't know why I didn't turn it off. But that's another story.
Anyway, I ended up having a nightmare about the show and at the very end, the perpetrator started shooting. You know how in a nightmare you're going to die but you wake up right before you do? Well, that's what happened to me, only the shooting was still going on! So it took me a minute to realize that it was hail. Only a minute though because boy did it become a doozy!
We ended up with very steady, very loud, very large (from what I could see out the windows) hail for about 15 minutes. Chopper was worried about the car. I was worried that there was going to be a tornado involved -- for some reason tornadoes and hail seem to go together in Texas. But we were safe. Abby woke up and I sat up with her for about an hour and Megan never even moved a muscle. And it was LOUD! Echoing off the room, banging on the windows. LOUD!
But we're safe -- and we've survived our first real hail storm. And now I'm going to put together a tornado / severe weather kit to keep in our bathroom. Oh and reassemble our 72-hour kits. Because this literally was a wake-up call!
