Yesterday I was surf fishing Sandbridge when a huge storm front came in, looked like it was gonna miss us but I checked the Radar and a big red blob was coming right for us, we packed up and left. While leaving I saw the folks on the pier, prepping to brave the storm, just as I got my gear loaded and got in my car, the most severe, wind, rain and Hail I ever experienced hit. Thought my windows were going to shatter, no joke, the car next to us had two windows break. IT WAS SO SEVERE YOU COULD NOT SEE MORE THAN A FOOT OUT OF THE WINDOWS! Anything not tied down was flying around, Metal 50 gallon drum trashcans were flying around like paper cups. It was like being in the middle of a tornado, not even exaggerating. It struck so sudden I wonder how the people on the pier were, I imagine people lost a lot of gear, IDK. Were anyone of you there? Oh yeah, No fish at Sandbridge yesterday.

I remember last years fishing trip I was next to my car on the James River fishing when a big storm showed up it dropped a ton of lightning. It was the day we had tornado warnings all over Virginia. I pretty much dropped my rod took cover in my car, then fished after the storm passed since it was raining heavy for days the river was high. Caught a ton of small croakers that day.
