Middle Of The Night Entry

It's 3:44 a.m. and WFAA's Pete Delkus just said, "It's not like the softball size hail reported in Wise County a little while ago . . . . " Anyone? Pics? blog2[at]wisecounty.com

The good Lord loves to beat the hell out of cars and houses. I guess we chalk disasters up to "mother nature" in order not to tick God off...but maybe if we simply acknowledged and thanked him when he destroyed stuff, he might not have to try so hard to wipe us out. I, for one, am going to start giving God credit for this stuff.

Lifestar helicopter EMS reported ont he radio that there was baseball and softball size hail at the Decatur Airport. I bet they took some photos.

I'm a little north of Decatur, and luckily, the hail I got was only marble-sized!!

My driver side mirror is broken - glass is cracked and it won't adjust. I had a good view of the driveway pavement when I was backing out this morning. There's also a few dents in the hood.

Guess I should get rid of some of the "stuff" in the garage so I could actually put my car in there.

About 1:00 this morning, I thought the windows in the house were going to come crashing in. As the storm was passing to the East, I could hear a constant low roar.

I didn't stay up late enough to see what time Pete Delkus took off his jacket, tie, and rolled up his sleeves as he always does when the weather is bad. We like the "relaxed" Pete, don't we?

Somebody needs to give these yankee weathermen a pronunciation guide to Texas cities. Larry Mowry kept mispronouncing Olney. It's "All-nee" not "Ole-nee".

I know he's from Florida and not technically a Yankee, but I've always lived by the "north of the Red or east of the Sabine" yankee rule.

Hah! I beat ya. I was up at 2:36am. I tuned into Channel 8 and had to do a double take to realize they were LIVE at that time. Pretty scary stuff for some folks. Only a little rain on Paradise Island.

TX 21 was reporting "grapefruit" size hail in Decatur before I went to bed. My hubby said, "WOW, that will kill someone if it hits them on the head." Ya think?

Didn't happen-have you ever picked up a softball?

We had some type of duck or bird land in our back yard. We can only guess that the hail hit it and injured it. The dogs were going nuts all night barking and we finally got up and saw a big black looking bird with webbed feet and a white beak. Must have been migrating and got caught in the storm. It died the next day. Never saw anything that big before in this part of Texas.
