Welcome to my world…
Yes, that is HAIL… about a thousand marble-sized hail pellets landed on our back step in a matter of seconds today!
(The above photo was taken at 5:17 p.m. today.)
You see, the MINUTE I arrived home from work today, I started to hear a loud “clanking” noise on every window in the house.
Until the electricity went out.
Then I realized we were in the midst of some kind of crazy storm!
He’s thinking: “All-u-can-eat ice delivered right to my front door!”
On the other hand…
I’M thinking: “Holy crap. We’ve just lived through a series of out-of-the-ordinary “frosts” and “freezes” in recent weeks.” And now, we’re faced with ICE!
After today’s hail storm, it appears that some of the flowers received one heckuva beating. Hopefully they’ll bounce back after this encounter with Mother Nature, just as they did after the “frosts” and the “freezes”.
To give you an idea of just how strange today’s storm was…
Check out the neighbor’s downspout. It’s GUSHING with boatloads of water from the hard rain that fell over the area… At the same time, marble-sized pellets of hail are gathering around the drainage spout and around the shrub.
