One of my favorite movies is "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" And one of my favorite lines in the movie is that of the maid Tillie who says, "All Hell done broke loose." Well, the hail broke loose around here last week. Like most of the country our weather has waxed and waned above normal and much below normal. I do not recall making the switch from air conditioning to heat so many times in one short week.
On Thursday, after a few hours of rain, the hail started. Small pebbles of hail bouncing all over the yard like popcorn in a popper. And just as suddenly, the hail stopped and the sun came out! Amazing how quickly it turned.
Icy hail in the sunshine
Fun if you weren't out
The deck was covered with little pebbles
The hail melted and disappeared in no time at all and we enjoyed sunshine the rest of the day.
Not everyone across the country has been so lucky. Our thoughts go out to those in the Midwest who are dealing with the severe flooding.
