Hail storm and torrential down pour at 9:00 pm.
I mean, if you live out on the eastern plains or Kansas, nasty night time storms happen, but on the Western Slope?
We had big, wet looking clouds. All we got was a few drops here in Arvada.
Definitely surprising for a nighttime storm in your neck of the woods, David!
I spent all afternoon watching the same "big, wet looking" clouds Popmama had, and hoping to get dumped on---but what I wound up getting hardly qualified as "a few drops!" Have my fingers crossed for tomorrow---sans-hail, of course!
Hope your tomatoes, et al, survived the hail,
P.S. If it helps, the northeast plains and moving into NE are getting hit right now!
I'm still hoping for rain. I have heard thunder twice now in the last month----It even got cloudy one day.
Surveying the damage this morning, it wasn't as bad as it looked peering out the windows last night. The large leaves on the squash look a bit tattered and the tomatoes aren't going to win any beauty contests. I have two apple trees - the Almata red fleshed ones - that are now mature, and it looks like the wind knocked off a bushel or so. Today is apple sauce making day.
