Hail, Yes!!

On Wednesday evening, B and I were driving back home from town when the sky looked very threatening. I opted to drive home the back road that looked like it might skirt the darkest area. We got further than I expected before we got into the rain. But we ran into hail before we got home. Just after we pulled into the garage, the rain and hail really picked up.

Of course the hailstones melt quickly, but you can still detect the layers of ice in this little one.

It collected in the grass and on the front walk.

It collected on the screen roof on the back porch.

It was the most we have seen since we moved here about 15 years ago. It was pretty exciting but we were glad that it was not any bigger. The young tomato plants in the yard did not show any damage.
