I was working in bristol right on the plainville line what a nasty storm

all could think of was that nasty storm we got caught in over at claudios a couple years back.

I was thinking thank god I am not on the water in this one

The kids and I just finished tubing in Clinton and it looked like it was going to miss us, but I am glad we wrapped it up when we did lots of wagter in a short time.

I know some people that got caught in the hail on the way back from the sound. No fun.

I was walking out of my office in Wilton when it hit. I walked right back in and watched the storm through the windows. The hail was pretty big. Top 3 worst thunderstorms I have ever been in. Here is a pic of how big the hail was.

I was on the boulevard in Bristol today and it looks like a BOMB went off. The threes 60 FTers are trashed and parts of them are in the pond.

Unbelievable how bad it is over there
