Incredible Hail!

Severe thunderstorms rolled through southern Wisconsin last night and dumped the largest hailstones I've ever seen. Unfortunately, my car was outside when the storm hit. Moving as quickly as I could, I put on my heavy-duty rain gear, ran outside, and got my car into the garage. I knew from the loud impacts the hood and roof were being dented. I got thwacked on the head a few times in the few seconds I was exposed. Storms like this cause me to ponder what happens to birds and other wildlife that can't find shelter in time, or at all. I sure hope I don't find any dead critters this morning at Pheasant Branch.
