The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

You know what they say, "If you don't like the weather in Texas... wait a few minutes and it will change! " That was certainly true tonight. Out of the blue, the skies opened up and unleashed a holy hail storm like none other! As quickly as it began, it ended minutes later and within 10 minutes the skies were blue again.   It looks like East Dallas/Lakewood got the brunt of the storm.  NorthPark Center also took quite a hit with skylights being broken and shattered.  Where I live in Park Cities, I only got 3 measly hail stones in my yard (whew!).  Others were not so lucky. Here are some photos I came across on Facebook.

What happened at your house??  If you took a photo, post a link to it in the comments.
