A Sudden Torrential Rain And Hail Storm

118-0-29 ... Denver suburbs, Colorado, USA, Earth

 

We have a landscape feature in our back yard called a dry creek. ... When they were doing the landscape I asked them to first put down a plastic liner in case we ever did get a cloudburst. ... Today it was running like a river !

 

Taken earlier today 7-31-12. ... The storm had subsided somewhat by the time I shot this video.... An even better video is at: www.flickr.com/photos/landoni/7689296622/

 

Many homes in our neighborhood have recently been re-roofed due to the last hail storm. ... Ours is waiting on the permit to be approved, so today's hail couldn't have ruined our already-ruined roof shingles. ... But I wonder if it damaged the brand new roofs.

 

Of course by the time I could get this uploaded to Flickr it was all sunshine and blue sky. ... That's Colorado !
