The videos are a lot better. Tons of dime to quarter sized hail.

South of Lansing. Outside of Mason.

I hear Jackson got golf ball sized hail.

So I think this is the only damage the house took last night. Nothing a can of paint can't fix. We got lucky. Some houses in the neighborhood sustained major siding damage.

wonder if it came through East Lansing like that? I was asleep. I don't recall hearing it hitting against the side of the house.

It sucks that my dog has become terrified of thunder. Breaks my heart. Climbs behind us on the sofa and buries her head. Rapid stress panting and shaking uncontrollably. The Composure Pro chewables and Thunder shirt weren’t much help.
She was never scared of loud noises until the year laws on fireworks were relaxed. Then everything changed.

Who uses a lacrosse ball as a size reference. Nobody knows how big a lacrosse ball is. Why not use a Jai alai ball? Or a polo ball?

Got windy for a bit here but has settled down. Saw some snow too. Seems like a normal SE Michigan April.

We've just had rain, hail and now huge flakes of snow in the last 45 minutes. Wind was strong now has died down.

Graupel. I learned a new word today, and it’s perfect for describing what we got today. Thanks, Floyd!

Super lucky timing too. We were replacing the shingles this year regardless.

A decent amount of houses have tarps over their roofs. I'm assuming that's the case with those?

Wow glad it didnt damage anything.

It mostly missed us. For some reason, most storms break up just before where we're at, or move just north. it was a mix of both, but at least we got some rain.
