Hail Aftermath

I don't know how we were so lucky, but the only dimples, pocks, divots or dents were in the lawn. Many close neighbors had all their cars damaged. It appears the hail was larger and denser here than where I was stuck in Latrobe. At least all our homes seem safe. Fifteen, twenty miles away, folks lost everything - but no lives were lost, as far as I've heard.

The youngest two bucklings also were quite traumatized after the storm. They were huddled in the corner of the stall yesterday morning and I had to carry them out to the field. I'm guessing they were slow running to shelter and got hurt, but its just a guess. If cars are dented, I'm certain they could be bruised.

Wow, yes, from the holes on your lawn those hail stones would have surely hurt the goats or anyone else hit by them. :(

Oh my, I hope they weren't bruised up too bad by the hail. I don't think I have ever seen it cause dents in the yard before, but I have seen it break glass...painful to get hit by it I am sure. Poor things!
