4. The stones up here were quarter sized!

I keep having to run out into the street, jump into my car, and start it up just so I can move it to a more sheltered location under a big tree.

8. You, too? I just posted about Lafayette.

My neighbor's veggie garden is toast, shredded, kaput.

Supposedly, we have more of this system moving through tonight. Keep yourself safe.

10. A second wave of pea-sized hail followed a half hour later.

I think my flowers suffered quite a bit, more from the first wave though because that hail was larger.

Have you noticed that lately thunder has been really loud with long rolling rumbles?

12. Yes. These storms remind me of the ones we used to get when I first moved...

To Colorado in 1981. I was living in Arapahoe County and they happened almost every late summer afternoon. We also saw wimpy tornadoes and funnel clouds. I thought those days were long gone. Were you here in the 80s? Do you remember?

14. I remember the storms of the early 80s.

I moved here late 81. There were always afternoon storms, but I don't remember there being so much hail!

Moved to a new house in Aurora in 2009. That first spring/summer we had constant tornado warnings. I remember teaching a class and getting three tornado warnings in an hour. I just gave up trying to teach that day.

19. Aurora always seems to get more dramatic weather.

I can remember driving home from work with water up to my car doors.

18. Seems like the real drought started in the 90s.

Especially in Boulder County. I can remember the late 90s and 2000s we had weeks w/o rain.

20. Remember the floods of 2013?

I was still in Aurora then. One of the bigger streets got flooded. The next week it was closed down. I walked over to look at it, and one lane was completely gone. There was a gully about five feet deep the water had cut!

21. Oh gosh, yes.

I had a temp job in Longmont at the hospital and 287 washed out and I couldn't get there. That was also the year I had a Danish exchange high-school student that year. I warned her how dry it was here in Colorado and then it flooded, LOL.

9. I posted, too, about Lafayette.

Sounded like the house was coming apart. My poor pets have just about had it the last couple of days.

11. One of our dogs gets very nervous because of thunder.

We've just started giving her Doggy-CBD treats to calm her. Seems to be working.

13. I've been thinking about CBD, too.

Both for me and my puppy. My older dog is deaf and has no fu#ks to give, LOL. I might try one on the pup.

15. Did you see all the lightning last night?

Lots of super bright lightning and long peals of thunder. My dog insisted on sleeping with me.

17. Peals...that's the word I was looking for instead of rumbles

And yes, lots.
