Storms at the Baseball Field
Last night my oldest son Christian had a baseball game. We got to the baseball fields, West Walton Park in Loganville, and the weather was beautiful. Sunny and warm with a slight breeze. We played 3 innings and the sky got dark, talk was rumbling through the bleachers of nearby tornado warnings moving closer, and then we saw the lightning. All the games were cancelled.
At West Walton Park we have 6 baseball fields. There were baseball games and softball being played on every field. The above photo is of us trapped in our car. The traffic was awful trying to get out of the parking lot! We waited a good half hour as the storms got closer. By the time we made it home, the storms were in full force with very strong straight line winds and even some hail the size of marbles. The storms stayed for about a half hour, then everything cleared up and the air was still!
West Walton Park also has 2 football fields. We play baseball in the spring and football in the fall. We spend alot of time there!
