Dallas and Fort Worth dodge the hailstone
... but same can't be said of of parts of Wise, Denton and Collin Counties.
It's a familiar story with seasonal storms in North Texas: some folks get the softball-sized hailstones while others get the shaft (as in little or no beneficial Spring rain out of the deal).
Overnight and early Friday morning (April 4) it turned out to be residents of Wise, Denton and Collin Counties who got the brunt of the heavy weather - resulting in leaves on the ground and knocked down trees - while folks living in Fort Worth and Dallas garnered only about .30 and .40 inches of rain out of the event, respectively (measured at Meacham and Love Fields) - hardly enough to water the emerging St. Augustine.
Weather for the remainder of the weekend is expected to be mild and - to use my favorite Rebecca Millerism - "rain free."
