And the rain came

The next night after we had poured the Footings we got on crazy storm. It spawned tornadoes, golf ball hail and massive rain.

This is on the road in front of our land (it's about 5:30 p.m.)

The Hail beat the crap out of my truck but there was no were to go. It sounded like a hammer was hitting the roof.

Sorry it's a bit blurry but you get the picture. It is about the size of a golf ball.

Another storm passes.

I was so worried after the storm to find that my footings were under water. I figured that they were ruined. However after some research I found that concrete after it has set (4-6 hours) will harden just as well under water as it will dry. The hardening is not caused by an air reaction it is a water reaction.

It took me two evenings to pump out all this water (about 2 feet).

Could this be God's promise to never flood my work site again?
