I feel like it could be seen as me being overly optimistic lately in the midst of a terrible severe/tornado season... but really I'm more like this... but I'm trying to see positives in this. I will say I'm happy that at least we're getting some action. The general pattern has shown to be at least somewhat favorable for severe weather here, but it's just the past 2 days it hasn't worked out for our part of Ohio. Ya win some, ya lose some. Eventually, you're bound to win some.

Still not at the peak of our severe weather season, so there is some hope. August and September are usually dead months, but after that we have October and November to look forward to in the annual Hail Mary tornado season. Our last BIG event was 2013, and I think the fall severe season has been mostly dead for us since then. So we're due.

With that said, not seeing any noteworthy severe threats to our region other than maybe some marginal risk days with afternoon popup storms. So that sucks.

By the way... we've actually had almost exactly as much severe weather as Oklahoma has had. More tornadoes and wind, but less hail. So, hey, could be worse. At least we aren't in Oklahoma with Oklahoma standards this year.

You guys want to see some hail? This hail flew out of the sky quickly. These small hailstones added up to 2" of hail depth, in the span of 15-20 minutes. Some other areas near me may have had 3/4" to 1" hail. Surprisingly, I didn't notice any super-loud thunder.

Wow that would be impressive to see I have seen hail a few times twice quarter the rest pea and marble sized but have only seen it accumulate a little, not like that!
