I am quickly going to post this before I lose my power here. Thanks goodness I do have backup batteries for my PC for occasions like this to give me time to shut the computer down.
Anyway this photo I have just taken West of my home. My husband has just came inside saying there has been large pieces of hail falling on top of his workshop shed. He is a busy man making up some frames for me for recent sales so hope he didn't slip off the mat with the cutter. Gosh I can now hear hail on the roof of the house... gee they are making a lot of noise. Gee it sounds like someone is throwing stones on our roof. Gee once more, is is now very scary!!!
I will be back with an update with this. I took a quick look and some of the hail is approximately one inch across and coming right in under the veranda hitting the wall. I don't hold any hope for our crops.
Update: Well that is life, we ended up with a flood and yes we had crop damage as well as fences washed away. Water was lapping the threshold of our back door and can be thankful that the water receded before it forced its way past the door. I will post photos as soon as possible.
