A line of severe thunderstorms came through today. I was getting my car worked on and was at the shop picking it up when the thunderstorm was occurring. Suddenly, there was an outright roar outside. I was just on the inside and turned around and hail between the size of a large marble (not regular sized marble) and a golf ball was falling. It lasted all of a minute, but it was spectacular while it lasted. A few minutes later when I paid for the work on my car, I learned that people further on the inside thought a tornado was occurring. That didn’t’ surprise me a bit.

Damage reports from across the area are still coming in including similar hail and a tornado in Charles County, my old stomping grounds.

The rain hung over our house slightly longer than the rest of the line and as it was departing, it produced this rainbow:
