Had a line of severe thunderstorms build up late yesterday afternoon and then move across from east to west. Moved in around 6:15 pm with very high winds, some hail and heavy rains.
First pic is around 5 pm and notice the temp at 100.

Little over an hour later.

Three minutes later you can see some hail in the pic.

Finally it was raining so hard and wind blowing and it looked like nighttime in a matter of 6 minutes. Temp was now 75.

One more feeder view(time is off 1 hour)





I have a 8'x30' front porch that is about 9' high. I had hail hitting the front door and windows with the high east winds. Rain also blew up under the porch and it was running down the inside of the front doors a bit. It was blowing in at the top of the front doors.

I spent the morning and early afternoon cutting up and moving downed tree limbs, then repairing the fence. Wind even blew a lid on an All Season Corn feeder that had spring latches on it. Rained on the corn, but I let it air dry in 96 degree temps. Most of the water ran out the funnel opening luckly.

Don't dip and left the beer till later grin I leave that to Payne cheers

I have not seen rain that hard with wind that strong (for a solid 20-25 minutes) in quite a few years. I am sure not all the rain went into the gauges either. The one about 50' from the limb on the fence only had 1.53" in it. It has tall trees around with the biggest to the east, where the rain was moving in from. That gauge will have more rain 90% of the time than the one at the house.

We were coming in from offshore as that storm moved inland. It was quite a nice sight. Nothing fell in Port A. but I saw it rained pretty good up at Refugio.

I have had one American Hunter 2000 lb feeder lid blow off before in a similar storm in the mid 90's. It had 2 of metal truck style hood latches. Ripped it off and I never found the 4' diameter lid. This one straightened on of the ring hooks a bit then flipped over the top I guess and the other side finally gave away. That feeder was about 300-350 yards from that limb on the fence location. I am thinking it was a funnel cloud that never came down all the way to the ground. I was worried about my windmill which is between the feeder and fence. I had turned it on mid-afternoon yesterday when this built up and hit. I was expecting the fan to be blown apart or the pumping rod to be busted, but it was okay from what I could tell. Wind was really swirling at my house. The first set of feeder pics is in front of my house.

I was reading your thread thinking man I wish it would build up here. Well I checked the radar and thought I was dreaming with all the showers that had popped up in just a couple of hours.

I've only lost the lids to stands and a barn. Haven't had a feeder lid blow off before, that's a little more than a gentle breeze.

That gentle breeze twisted the top out of a mesquite tree and threw it about 90' across the fence into the neighbors. I am glad that tree top did not hit the 2 way corner posts. That would have been a mess. I am still thinking a funnel cloud with all the hail and lightening.

We always put big rocks on top of our feeders. It is not foolproof but works most of the time.
