Don't need the rain, but the sky is lighting up like the 4th of July right now!!

Man, is it raining now!! Some sleet/hail too. Glad the truck is inside!!

And I think I'll veto the metal pole idea. But thanks!

Still low. 40 days and 40 nights of weather like this and it should fill right up. And give me lake front property!! Now, where did I put the plans for that turbine powered ark???

How big is the hail? I chase hail storms and do paintless dent repair. One good hail storm and I could pay off my boat!

Yeah, in Holland we had a T Storm Warning, all the streets are flooded and it was a light show for sure. My hottie neighbor (who is engaged ) came over because her basement had water in a brand new house, I gave her my wet vac and said start sucking. Then she slapped me in the face I had no water because I built my house above grade, others in the neighborhood chinsed on fill sand and have a hard time with even a bathroom in the basement. I guess $5000 extra for sand was worth it.

Sorry, it was really small hail, more like sleet. Just enough to make noise on my picture window.

No, problem! We need quarter or golf ball sized hail before we'll set up a shop.
