Hail Storm

It is not unusual to have afternoon thunderstorms.  Some of the time we just get the thunder and lightening but no rain.  So one day when we heard the thunder and the wind started blowing, we though nothing of it.

Within minutes small hail started coming down.  Still we thought nothing of it.  Silly us....
All of sudden hail started pounding the motorhome.  The sound was deafening.  After ten minutes of this we started worrying that the large hail was going to break our windows.  This storm lasted more than thirty minutes and was truly one of the scariest things we have endured in the motorhome.  I will now take high winds any day over large hail.

Once the storm passed over, everyone started emerging from their homes to check out the damage.  Over the next few weeks there were lots of  awnings, vent covers and air conditioner covers replaced.  Mobile RV service vehicles were constantly driving through the park.
