LA SALLE, Colo. -- For Weld County farmer and corn maze operator Glen Fritzler, Wednesday's hailstorm was the worst he has seen in 17 years.

It also caused lots of damage to his property and crops.

Fritzler said the popular corn maze was damaged and the pumpkin patch was leveled. He said onions were scheduled to be harvested on Wednesday morning, but the storm all but wiped them out.

"We definitely have a sense of loss," Fritzler said. "But at the same time, you've got to be grateful for what you still have. And that's probably the emotion that I try to hold on to."

Despite the heavy damage, Fritzler believes the maze will open next month.
