I wasn't kidding about the storm, guys

Yesterday a hail storm blew up out of nowhere, dumping shooter-marble-sized chunks of ice as fast as an in-door icemaker can. Luckily, it was a short storm - maybe five minutes before it switched to rain - so it didn't shred many of my plants. It was freakishly localized, too - we drove less than 10 miles north of our house and not only did they not get the hail, it was dry as a bone and hadn't seen a drop of rain all day.

Want a quick peek at why my cats ended up hiding in the closet during the storm? I'd turn down the volume on your speakers, if I were you.
