    107 then the ground covered with hail? I guess it's true. If you don't like the weather, wait a while and it'll be a whole 'nuther story!

    That is the same storm that caused our problems,we didn't get the hail out here by the lake, hardly any rain just the awful winds.
    They said it was a dry thunderstorm.What?????
    never heard of that before.
    The storm was still between Altus and Lawton when the winds started here,absolutely no warning.
    We are waiting for the insurance to come out .our roof is mainly gone,let the clean-up begin.

    Famous last words..lol.He sounds like my husband.
    I am sorry about your flowers,like I said we didn't get any hail out here.all our damage came from the wind.Insurance adjuster is coming out tomorrow because of the roof.
    We have been hunting for our stuff all morning,what wasn't attached went into the woods.
    We had to come in though it is so hot again, maybe go out later in the evening.
    OH the joys of living in Oklahoma....wouldn't live anywhere else :-D :-D

    Weather has been mixed up last several years, all around the country. It seems to happen in cycles.
