Default Bumpy Weather Tonight in ArklaTex

I was looking over the Router Forums new posts and heard tapping on the window. Looked outside to see pea size hail. We are going to get some bad storms around noon but looks like it has started early with thunder, lightening and small hale. Glad my car insurance is paid up, may need to make a claim after these storms pass.

If you dont like the weather in Texas just wait a few minutes and it will change.

We have had some severe hail storms, here in Sydney, recently.

A work colleague had her car written off by insurance, and my Son has to have the roof replaced on his near new Honda Civic Hatch...

We had 80 tiles broken on our roof and some houses in the area are still having the full roof replaced...

We were supposed to get golf ball size hail a few days back. Apparently some areas did get it, but it bypassed me. The river in the county seat did reach flood stage, usually get a foot deep over the bridge at the edge of town, but nothing new there, any time it rains hard upriver often gets up to flood stage at the county seat.

North Texas along the Oklahoma border is known as tornado alley... Yes we do get more than our fair share of tornadoes all over the state.

Glad to say it was a gorgeous Spring day today. Bright, sunny, not too hot. Then clouds blew in late afternoon. What is amazing is that there is still plenty of snow on the high mountains that surround us. Rare to see snow around here in April, and it may last into May. The clouds help keep the snow from melting.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

We've had several F4 and even an F5 or two in Bossier City in northwest Louisiana. The one in 1978 became the fifth tornado in American history to produce at least $100M in damages and killed two young girls when a car was thrown into their bedroom. Our Pastor's house was hit hard and was only a block from where the girls died. That tornado hit and tore everything up starting 100 yards from my house and headed northeast away from our house so we were very lucky.

The one in 1999 was very bad, too, an F4 that killed 7 but didn't do as much in damages because it hit in more rural areas. That one did damage about a mile north of us and kept going away so we were lucky again.

I read somewhere that since 1950 there have been over 50 tornados to hit this area of northwest Louisiana. We've learned to hunker down when necessary and take warnings and watches seriously!

I don't like storms, I can deal with them unless there is lighting, as a kid lighting came very close to hitting me and have been scared of it ever since.
