The Pumpkin Season is Done for Me :-(
Quarter sized hail and tornado winds destroyed everything in the pumpkin patch last night. In the space of 3-4 minutes everything was gone. The most wicked storm I have ever seen. At one point the hail was literally moving horizontal and I couldn't see my street it was so thick. In the end there was 2' of hail piled up in the yard, an 8" thick three trunk was sheared at the stump directly across the street, power was out, broken tree limbs everywhere, a house was crushed 6 houses down from a fallen tree and some broken windows on the street. My house for the most part appears okay. Screens are broken and some minor roof damage. The pumpkin patch is a total loss however. The pumpkin looks like the surface of the moon and there is literally not a leaf to be found. The stumps look okay so I'll see if something will grow out of them for my own interest but there won't be any pumpkins this year going to the scale.
