Welcome to our forums!
This online gardening community is different, political, and organic. I decided to start these forums so gardeners would have a free place to discuss heirloom gardening, gene-altered food, seed saving, natural politics and products. We are dedicated to saving our food and horticultural heritage, and hope you enjoy this forum for the free-thinking gardener!
Wishing you great gardening,
No, I didn't see a picture of the wall cloud. What I did see was pretty intense though.
I talked to Timothy a few weeks ago. Gave him a call. He got tickle when I told him that I first "googled" his name to make sure he wasn't dead! LOL
I remember him saying that he sprayed his plants with something also............is it Kelp?
Just be glad you guys are okay. I was watching the Super Cell that hit just across the line in Greene County and knew that it was very, very bad. The lightning was a vivid ball of orange and red. It killed 6 or 7 over there but the storms never crossed the mountain into NC, luckily for us.
On a funny note, I asked my step-daughter how bad the hail hurt her Mustang.
She says "Not too bad, I think. it only has maybe 80 dings on it"!
My next door neighbor's 2 cars have been totaled b/c of the hail damage. I park under trees. I think the branches and leaves slowed the hail down. I wound up with minor dings. The good that came out of it is that I learned one of my cars doesn't have comprehensive coverage and it should. Luckily, it was damaged too bad. Several schools didn't dismiss the kids b/c of the threat. Parents were lined up waiting to pick kids up.
You are lucky that your daughters school let out. A lot of kids were held late because of the storms. They let them out and they hit again.
My step-daughter lives over next to the mall and she said it was the darndest thing she has ever seen. She just bought an '07 Mustang and the hail beat that thing silly.
