Well our luck ran out today where the hail was concerned. This is a cabbage from our garden. It looks pretty good compared to some of our corn and wheat. It has about 5 dings from hail stones. The hail stones were anywhere from a half dollar to small marbles, with wind. Glad none came through our windows.
There was a 1 1/2 mile stretch on I-70 that was pounded during the storm. Vehicles going west had the back windows completely broken out and vehicles traveling east had windshields shattered.
We hope no one was seriously injured. Our concern was for families with little kids sitting in the back seats or in car seats. The wind was suppose to be around 60 mph at the time, so after the window was broken, I would imagine those in the vehicles had the baseball size hail to contend with coming into their vehicles.
