Your Ao4 Weather Moment

Hi everypuppy! It's me, Ammy! You know the stormy weather Stormy told you about yesterday? We ended up having all kinds of excitement, to include the city's emergency warning sirens going off and everything! We have a lovely downstairs, so we went down there for a while and helped Dad with his workout.

Remember once before I showed you some hailstones? Well, OK, that was an April Fool's Day joke, but this time Mom went out and nabbed one so we could show you how big they were. Check this out!

2 JUN 08

The bipeds on the radio said we had "softball" sized hail, but we didn't see any that big. Later reports were that they were the size of baseballs on our side of town; the ones we saw were more like ping pong balls or so.

Mom went upstairs and shot this video while the rest of us were downstairs. She was in the screened-in part of the deck, with the door open.

Once that was past us, we had a little clearing, then another cell rolled in. Check this out - you can see the storm on the horizon!

2 JUN 08

It was as dark as nighttime out there! Here's a short video of that storm cell approaching!

We had more storms over night, but nowhere near as severe. Today will hopefully be calmer!

This has been your Ao4 Meteorolgist, Amber, with your Weather Moment!

    Hi Ammy!

    I'm glad you are all safe from the "s"torms. I think they came this way today...

    The hail didn't ruin any of your plantings, did it?


  4. Oh Ammy - thank dog we have have you to bring us the latest!


  5. Woo....that's scary. Those hail stones look like somebuddy's magic cold box got very, very angry!

  6. OMG, that's ice cubes falling from the sky and bouncing on your deck! We hope the flowers didn't take too much of a beating!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  7. I was watching the weather cahnnel with Dad this morning and wondered if you guys were in the middle of all the storms going through Kansas. I hope all your beautiful plants are okay after that hail!
    Stay safe!!

  8. That is some very big hail. Hopefully all your vehicles were out of harms way...

  9. Ammy,
    We're happy to hear that you are safe but we are concerned about you letting your Mom go upstairs. If the ice cubes attacked her, who would give you your treats?

    Keep her safe,
    Princess Eva

  10. Ammy,

    I am under the bed just hearing about the storms. But, not Sparta Suck Up. Y'all be very careful. Maybe it's time for a new TDY.

    Lhasa Love,

  11. Hi, friends!
    that flashing thing from the sky sure is scary!
    Glad you all were inside!
    Kisses and hugs

  12. OMD Ammy that is just craziness! Glad you are all ok!

    Lots of Licks, Ruby

  13. Your human woman is insane.

    That's all I have to say about that.


  14. Wow, that's sscary! There apparently were huge hailstones a little further north and east in the province, but in summer, our storms never send off emergency sirens! How scary!


  15. Oh that looks scary. It must be pretty painful to be hit by those hail stones

  17. Ooooh, that's some bad weather. We're glad you're all in one piece there.
