Stormy Weather

When I got off work today, it was sunny and clear. As I was driving home it became darker and I could see the black clouds looming ahead. All of a sudden it started to downpour and then came HAIL. I was scared to drive, so pulled into a Safeway parking lot to sit it out. I could see the lighting but couldn't hear the thunder through the hail hitting my car. I have never been so terrified, the sound is indescribable and I would not wish it upon anyone. After 15 minutes it slowed down so I drove very slowly, as did most drivers and finally made it home. Tiger was not too happy, going from room to room and I now have a better understanding of how she must feel during a storm. 2 hours later it was sunny again. :)

That is so weird Irene! I'm glad to hear you were able to pull over and wait it out. Usually that's the best thing you can do :o)

Poor Tiger :o(

Sounds like it was one wild rainstorm. You were very smart to wait it out until it seemed to calm down. Glad your ok and made it home safely.
