That looks terrible, Jassy. Sorry about the devastation that goes with getting a rain. We had a wild storm go through late this afternoon and got 7/10 of an inch. Fortunately no hail, but I think northeast of here had some bad hail. There has surely been a lot of severe weather this summer; hopefully the winter won't give us the equivalent in snowy blizzards. :?

Tough go Jassy. It is funny how it can damage some things and skip over others.

When I read the title I thought I was going to see some furry critters but instead I saw the Fury of Ma Nature. :p

Those bins look like a giant stepped on them. That was an ugly storm.

Wow, that's a lot of destruction. I feel for you and all those that need to deal with that damage. Good luck going forward.
