Puddle Stomping?

Memorial Day Hail spoils picnic

As we packed for our picnic adventure for Memorial day we checked the weather online and saw a severe thunderstorm warning. A few moments later it started to rain then quickly turned to very loud and large pieces of hail. It knocked leave off trees and between the leaves and the hail clogged the drains. As it continued to rain, the streets turned into rivers. Neighbors came out with their winter shovels to try to unclog the drains and save water from going into garages and homes. They were also outside cautioning drivers to not go through the over knee deep water in alleys and streets. Water has subsided now and the sun has come out but we have found many of our screens replaced by holes with round hail sitting in the window sil.
