A crazy storm in Erda!

Wednesday we had the wildest storm here for about 1.5 hours. The rain was torrential and the hail tore apart our vegetable garden and many plants and trees. Our dry riverbed was flooded again, but fortunately we had put a large drain pipe in the end so it emptied quite quickly!
No one who lives out here has seen these kind of rains before - pretty awesome and wild and frightening all at the same time!
Here's some photos:

Hail on our back deck.

Flooding at our northern side and in our neighbors fruit trees

Pretty impressive cloud and rainbow

Wet streambed - fortunately we had just put in a 15 inch diameter drain pipe in the far end that morning.

Water fills the lowest spots

Diana's waterfall got a workout!
