A Hailstorm!

"Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do His bidding..."
~Psalm 148:7-8~

It just hailed! We heard warning sirens, and the sky rumbled ominously. However, we never expected hail! Without much warning, the heavens burst open with intense rain and hail. The downpour lasted for about 10 minutes, then simply stopped, almost as abruptly as it began. It truly brings to mind God's power!

I guess you could call it Alabama snow... The weather has been so weird lately!

The calm after the storm. The sun came out, and a strange mist arose and is still hanging around. Sadly, our flowers haven't faired very well - they're a bit crushed. But, perhaps they'll come back. Thankfully, it doesn't look like our blueberry bushes have been damaged too badly. Praise God for that!

"I know that the LORD is great, that our Lord is greater than all gods. The LORD does whatever pleases Him, in the heavens and on the earth, in the seas and all their depths. He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from His storehouses."
~Psalms 135:5-7~

Wow, amazing! :)

Thanks for posting the pictures!


Wow! We haven't seen hail in years! We used to live up North and it hailed more often and tornado warnings were frequent, at least we had a basements up there, which we used when it got really stormy outside.

We got some hail, too, but not quite as much as y'all did.
There were reports of it being as big as baseballs over in Millbrook.

I think hail is just amazing!

Wow! We can get a little hail oput here, bu NOTHING to bring about warning signals. You're right, Anna, you could call it Alabama snow!
