It looked like snow on the ground. Lots of it blew onto our front porch. I had been taking pictures from there but needed to move to the screened porch to keep out of harms way. By then, the yard was turning white. Not quite covered, but almost. Unfortunately, my pictures through the screen did not turn out.
It lasted over 10 minutes, but seemed like forever. The dogs were freaking and the cats were traumatized. Sissy cried and howled through the whole thing. Our poor little Cindy was outside when it hit. She hid under the porch and I couldn't get her to come out til it was well over. She's still recovering.
Our vehicles were out in the open and they're dinged up pretty well. The barn roof is dinged up, but we think/hope our house roof is OK. We need to take a closer look to be sure.
More bad weather is expected later. The first round was crazy, but thankfully, we're all just fine. Hopefully, the next round will be dull and UN-extraordinary.
