    “It was about 10 minutes after 2 when it hit. We were getting ready to head to town and dark clouds started to come across the hill so we were going to wait. Before we could head back into the house the rain started pouring so we sat inside our vehicle waiting for it to pass, and that’s when all the wind started blowing,” he said.
