Hail!

Okay. Who thought this was going to be a good idea? Hail! The noun, not the verb. It was very noisy on the windows and the roof. The cats were more upset about it than they usually are about thunder.



I once heard someone question why hail is always described as being "the size of..." something else - usually golf balls. This hail was the size of petit pois. I have to say I've never heard it described that way on the news but it fits.

Ok, was this recent? Funny how the weather can be so different in the course of 15 miles......worlds apart.

Even two miles apart! This was Friday and B says it was almost nothing at the office.
