OK, so the bad weather that was forecast showed up and did no additional hail damage to my neighborhood.  It did however dump tons of rain (over four inches on average) everywhere so that flooding was pretty rampant.  The schools were closed yesterday because so many roads were covered that not all buses could get through.  The rain ended yesterday morning and left behind some really strong, continuous, straight-line winds.  A friend lost about a third of his roof to this blowing.

Evan and his buddies bought kites and went to the soggy park.  The wind was so strong that the kites did poorly.  In the end, the kites were shredded so much that they flew the plastic sack that the kites came in and those did rather well.
