I am usually at work when weather hits but this storm was driven by a front and built overnight until it exploded. I was in Center Point when the little red weather radio in the kitchen announced Fredericksburg was getting ping pong ball sized hail. It wasnt until i got to work the next day that staff notified me that certain parts of fredericksburg were blessed with tennis ball sized hail. The patient i was seeing asked me to pull up her window blinds. Upon doing so i noted a big circular hole in the glass which provided direct access to the exposed window screen.
The circular piece of glass that was missing was sitting at the bottom of the window, held in place by the screen and window ledge. There were shards of glass around it but for the most part the whole circle had stayed intact after it had been punched out of the bigger piece. The grass beneath the window was flooded. It was just one of many hail storms that would roll through in the span of two weeks, and people wondered why i opted out of a glass skylight on the greenhouse. Weather.
