Hail In Dallas

Brett has been saying he wanted to play golf the last few days so after finishing up his boards he went to play.  (He said boards went fine.  Really hard and exhausting.  Won't know scores for several weeks.)

Anyway he said he was on the green on the 13th hole and he thought someone had accidentally hit a ball that way.  Then it happened again and he quickly realized it was not a golf ball and it was hailing!  He ran under a tree because he didn't have a cart and a few minutes later someone in a cart came by and he jumped on and they took him to his truck.

He called me and I could barely hear him from the pounding of the hail.  He waited it out for about 25 or so minutes and tried to head home.

Someone in a car had pulled over under a tree to try to get some protection from the hail and had gotten stuck.  Brett stopped and hooked a tow strap up and pulled him out.  He said the guy was really thankful because he had just moved from Florida and had nobody to call and didn't know what he was going to do.  

Golf Course
Our Backyard
Whole Foods Parking Lot

Brett said the parking lot looked like someone had taken a baseball bat to all of the cars and people were crying and flipping out.

Golf ball sized but he said he saw some orange sized pieces.
When he got home someone from the newspaper was going up and down the street and asked for an interview.  Here is the link to the article:

Almost famous Brett- haha

Anyway- pretty crazy stuff.  His truck got hit pretty hard.  I still haven't seen it and some tiles on our roof were broken so I called our insurance agent today to try to start getting some of that taken care off. I don't think anyone was hurt thank goodness.


  1. Oh my word!!!i didnt know it got your neighborhood, thank goodness everyone is ok! How was his truck?

  2. Oh. my. gosh. I had heard it was bad, but I guess I didn't realize it was THAT bad! Glad everyone was ok!
