We must have gotten about 10 lbs of 1/4" hail at my house. The side yard was like a 4' wide river.
I've been here 9 years and I don't think I've ever been in a home in TX that had a basement. I've seen some root cellers, but those are just mostly pre-a/c rooms dug into the ground for storing vegetables from the heat of the day. The soil is so soft here that basements do very poorly, a regular slab foundation does pretty poorly as well if you don't keep it watered properly.Keep them down there Steve, we're just starting to get some nice weather up here. Storms always seem to start in your neck of the woods and reek havoc by the time they get here. :neutral:
Hope you didn't get any water in your basement. :shocked: (Do you have a basement?)
