So we had some freaky storms yesterday in North Texas. I knew they were coming, so I went for my run just before they arrived. Man, I’m glad I did. Others weren’t so lucky.
First off, my pre-storm run was incredibly humid and windy and hot. I was a sweaty mess. But then the storm came. The temps dropped, the winds increased, and hail fell from the sky. We were also under a tornado watch. In fact, this photo was taken at the minor league baseball game about 3 miles from our house.
What was really crazy though was the hail. They were mostly golf ball size. Some smaller, some bigger. I would’ve taken a video, but I was too busy running around the house making sure no windows were getting broken. I also didn’t take a photo of any of it. But luckily the next morning, some was still outside.
As I was examining our windows, I saw a truck pull into the school down the street. Why? Apparently a lady was walking her dog when she got caught in the storm and was trying to take shelter next to the building. She called the truck driver to rescue them. I cannot begin to imagine how bad that would’ve hurt – getting pelted with ice balls falling from the sky. She was probably all like, “What the hail!?!?”
Other than that, it was a good week of workouts. Sun – Trail Run & Yoga Class, Tues – Run, Wed – Weights & Track Workout, Thurs – Run & Hail Storm
Have any hail horror stories? Ever been on a run and got caught in a storm? (I did once – a thunderstorm out of nowhere – had to take shelter under a park awning.) Anyone else have any real hail photos?
