"Just trying to get things back together again, yesterday was pretty scary," said Joann Kirchner.

"It was kind of like Christmas in July, shoveling snow," said James Murphy, of Flourtown.

On Thursday, Murphy still has hail left outside his home on Spruce Road.

"I was literally shoveling hail last night, in July," said Murphy.



Murphy and many other neighbors were running their generators after strong winds knocked out the power.

"Sounded like a freight train, that sounded like it was coming from the backyard," said Murphy. "It was scary."
