Saturday evening here in the Columbia area was quite an experience. We had tornatic activity and had one touch down in Lugoff just on the other side of Northeast Columbia. We also had a great deal of high winds and hail. Irmo is a community in Lexington County, right next door to Columbia.
I had a buyer who wanted to look at several houses in that area Saturday afternoon. Of course, I said that I would be more than happy to show him around. Earlier that day, the news was calling for rain and possible thunderstorms that night. I attended the Home and Garden Show where I manned the booth for my office for a few hours that morning and thought nothing more about the weather.
When I met the buyer at our Irmo office, it was cloudy, but nothing major. We looked at the first few properties with no problem what so ever. Well, as we were headed for the last property on the list, suddenly it began to hail so bad that we could not even see the cars in front of us and the wind picked up so severely that we were both sure that it was going to flip my car over. Several trees were uprooted in the area and a few houses were damaged, but thankfully my buyer and I escaped without a scratch. Just some shaken nerves and an agreement to call it a day.
