Last Thursday was big hail day for some of us in southern CO. We were lucky it wasn't 4" but golf ball/marble size was bad enough, it piled up like
snow. We could hear it coming, pretty scary stuff.
Did a little damage but we're ok. Some folks are having a tough time. The rains are wreaking havoc on the Spring Creek burn scar. Roads are washing
bad, mud/boulders/debris keep closing the hwy near us. One minute we're running from wildfire, the next it's flood/mudslide.
It's open range here, no barns for cattle, huddling under trees is all they can do. There's a guy here who walks bent over/can't stand up straight. As
a kid he and his brother got caught out in a bad hailstorm. He laid on top of his little bro and took an awful beating.
Right now the wind's screaming, doppler's warning of possible tornadoes, damaging winds, hail just east of us. They're forecasting more of the same
for the next week/if not the whole month of August. Better batten down the hatches.
Hope you all come through it no worse for the wear. Stay safe.
