The rain started to come down around 5:30 PM. As we were driving home from work at the intersection of Miccosukee and Magnolia garbanzo bean-sized hail started to fall on our car. The hail then quickly turned into heavy rain drops. But the rains stopped around 6:15 PM. We thought everything was OK.
Then around 9:45 it started again. This time around our neighborhood there was less of rain and hail but we couldn’t sleep due to the loud and constant rumbling of the thunder and almost blinding lightning. Most of the thunder and lightning seemed to be confined to the south and southeastern part of the Leon county. It went on and on for about 1 1/2 hour. Then it started rain slightly. When it was done it was almost 11:45 PM.
