We’ve been having some fierce storms lately. The rain comes in downpours. The lightning is fierce and so bright it hurts your eyes. Of course, thunder rolls in accompaniment. Hail decides to participate. In this morning’s newspaper, there’s a picture of a car with its rear windshield broken by a hailstone that was tennis ball size. Fortunately, that occurred about 50 miles or so south of me but the sight of the picture made me so very thankful for my garage. The hail which has fallen in my area has been smaller. Tuesday the only phone calls I got were messages from the Code Red Weather Warning folk. In addition to the severe thunderstorms, I got flash flood warnings. I noticed last night as I drove to church that the Meramec River was a lot higher than it had been the last time I crossed it. I imagine it’s still higher today.
