Cindy Fuller had devoted several years to brightening her Baker City property with trees and flowers and raspberry bushes.

A hailstorm that lasted just a few minutes about 3 o’clock Friday afternoon ravaged much of what Fuller had accomplished.

“Everything on the property took a hit,” Fuller wrote in an email to the Herald. “Quite devastating for me to see all my hard work over the years I put into this land, trying to make it something instead of a barren lot, get damaged like this.”

Fuller lives at 1028 Resort St., in south Baker City between Indiana Avenue and Myrtle Street.

The storm, which brought hailstones about the size of marbles, seemed to focus its wrath on the southern part of town.
