Thanks for the support Allie! I never imagined it could do that sort of damage either! I hope all the clean up is done by next weekend but thanks so much for the offer anyways!

BTW You puppie just pee'd on my floor! Little brat! She is getting so big and playful.

Terrible thing, FGR. How long did the hail last for? Probably not long right -- it's amazing what the power of nature is. Hopefully all repairs will be covered and glad that you and yours are fine. Hopefully the person that was injured at the camp will be recovering OK.

Wow!!! That is so scary! We have been getting hail alot here in NY this summer. The biggest it has ever gotten to was probably as big around as a penny. And we thought that was big!! Jeeze!

^^ A penny?! Lucky. The biggest I have seen around here was softball/grapefruit sized about 5 years ago. But it commonly gets to golf ball sized. Not really big enough to do major damage but will sure puts some dings in your car. ;p

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Okay - when I read that the first time I thought you said "mennonites"

That storm was horrible! We had broken trees (luckily that was the extent of the damage).
Did you hear what happened at Big Valley? Horrible!

Hope you can get everything fixed!!

NorthernMama, haven't seen you one for a bit! Glad to see you!

It lasted about half an hour, at least that is what most people say. I was so busy getting everything else together I had no idea what kind of time has passed.

Snapple I did hear about BVJ that was terrible. There was also a tornado in Didsbury (about half hour SE of Sundre) that same night that killed 20+ horses but no people were injuried.

It was just a horrible weekend everywhere.

I didn't hear about the tornado!! That is horrible! Those poor horses :(.
I was thinking about the people at the Strathmore rodeo on the weekend and hoping all the chuck drivers and horses were ok, I know one that was racing there.
