It all began about 4:00 p.m., Sunday, March 13 as storms entered Arkansas from the West. For hours Arkansians had their eyes glued to their t.v. screens as our valiant weathermen tried to help us track tornadoes, hail, wind, and damage that crossed our state for over 8 hours. Luckily few of the funnel clouds reached the ground, but the hail ranged from pea size to grapefruit size. Homes were destroyed, flooding occurred, car windows were shattered by the hail, trees fell on homes and automobiles. Semi-trucks were blown off the road due to 80 m.p.h. winds and a lot of us waited to rush to the storm cellars. Luckily a lot of the damage was in rural, sparsely populated areas and no one lost their life. Still, your heart has to go out to those that lost their homes.
The following pictures of the sky, are just exactly as I saw them, I could not believe the surreal, ominous look of these clouds.
Even the Kangaroos who live down the road, were wondering why it was so wet and foggy.
