|We watched the storm clouds as they formed over the mountains today. We were really hoping we would not have the winds we had been having, and really hoping for no hail, as that is not a good thing when you live in a trailer. We got lucky, having only some wind and a little rain. But the southern end of Colorado Springs was just hammered with baseball sized hail. It hit our zoo, causing injuries to some of the animals and the loss of several more. And every car in the parking lot (400 or so) was totaled, with huge dents and all the glass broken out. Many people were from out of town, and were stranded by this storm. It was sad to see, and even made the national news.
