As May comes to a close, sections of my home state of Colorado were pounded with hail storms that looked like snow as it piled up on the ground. I breathed as we only got a “kiss” of it versus the three inches that hammered cars, windows, and gardens minutes away from my home. Three years ago, my roof was toast after a severe weather happening.
