It was a dark and stormy night...

A pretty good storm came through the city last night, with lightning, high wind, and some hail.

The storm cloud just northwest of the city.

Back downtown, the rain is just starting.

Starting the rain and hail just outside my apartment building.

Pea-, possibly marble-sized hail, whichever's bigger.

That's the top of someone's tree in the middle of the street.

I wouldn't want to be in that car that's being pelted with hail.

The storm continues to get bad.

The hail collected on the north side of my building.

At least my car's OK.

The heavy rain led to the formation of Cheadle Creek.

The calm after the storm.

Some hail sticking around on the front step.

The church is OK.

The north side of the building took most of the hail, but no damage to the property.

There's more pictures here, here, and here.
