Pic Today 4/16/11





ALL HAIL BROKE OUT

So "planting day" came, April 15 . . .
the day it's officially "safe to plant our gardens."
(In this climate zone, anyway.)

A light rain . . . mild temperatures . . . and then
WHOOSH . . . tornado warnings were posted . . .
the sky went dark, and a big storm moved through
and "all hail broke loose", literally!

Hail fell from the sky in torrents.
Huge amounts of the stuff.
It hurt to be outside. (Ouch.)

An hour later the sun shined through.

(Watch out: crazy Spring weather is here.)
