    That ain't nuthin! Back 2 months before Hurricane Irene hit ENC, we had the worst hail storm I've seen since 1986. Stones the size of baseballs, hurled at the house so hard, it did $3000 worth of damage to our siding & windows. Our vehicles have dings, too. Now THAT was a hailstorm!

    The storm seemed to come out of no where then the rain just started to pour down then the wind picked up. Then it really stated to rain & hail the wind was blowing so hard the rain hail was was going sideways like bullets. I said " Oh No Tornado " I got on the US Tornado Warning there was I no show in our area? Radar said the storm was going south real fast then it was over as fast as it came. Now it is sunny and nice. My little 6 baby dogs got real scared. Maybe not as much as me! Where is my wife out shopping figures. Her question what storm? Have a good day people.
