We just had a spate of hail go through. I was sitting here at the computer when I heard it start and it took me a second to figure out what it was. When I did I ran out to try and save my flower pots and tomatoes from getting hammered. Man oh man was it coming down! I got pelted! Marble sized hail, fortunately not for too long a time though. Now I could shovel my deck. LOL.
I'm glad you realized what the sound was and that you were able to minimize the damage. I know you've had some weather, but they didn't say anything about hail..... yet.
