So we had a dramatic hail storm last night around dinner time.  At one point, the rain and hail were coming down so hard that I couldn't see past my balcony railing!  This morning, there was still a bit of hail around the front door of our condo building. 

 

There was a tree tipped over further down the block and lots of large branches down on my drive to work this morning. 

 

I still need to have a good look at my car for damage--and there are predictions for another storm today.

 

Exciting and destructive.
