Six Word Saturday…June 4

I’m joining Cate this morning for  SWS.

My six words for today are:  We had a hailstorm last night!

hail that landed on the porch

It’s been unusually hot and dry here in the south.  Our temps have been over 100 degrees several times already. We haven’t had any significant rainfall in several weeks.  All of that changed last night!

No rain was in the forecast, but about eight o’clock last night, a dark, black cloud blew in bringing more than just rain with it!  It brought thunder, lightening, wind, rain,and hail!  I’ve never seen so much “marble-sized” hail falling before!  It peppered down from the sky for at least 5 minutes before it finally stopped!   It’s amazing to think that large hunks of ice can fall from the sky, along with huge rain drops.

We didn’t need the hail, but we were so thankful for the rain!  We could almost hear the ground sucking the water up!  Thankfully, we didn’t get any damage from the storm, and  thank goodness we won’t have to water the grass and flowers for a few days!

  1. Hi Kathy 🙂 ~~ I hope you didn’t have any hail damage!
    We came back (near Houston, Texas) last night from the midwest. We escaped all the hail up there but when we hit Louisiana our temp gauge showed 100°F.

    That was almost my 6WS until the Spelling Bee stuff came along.
    Happy 6WS! 🙂

  2. Wow, that must have been amazing to see all that hail fall! Glad that you didn’t get any damage from it. Have a blessed weekend!

  3. That looks like some serious hail. Bet it would hurt if you were caught out in it!

  4. I’ve had to run to my house from a sudden hail storm like that before. No fun at all. We had about a month of no rain but now it’s back. And my son’s team is in the middle of playoffs and the games keep getting pushed back. His coach is scheduled to go on vacation this Thursday and another boy is supposed to leave the country for two months on Wednesday. If we don’t get to play soon, we’ll be playing without them. 😦

  5. Um WOW! (Found your blog from Six Word Saturday!)

  6. I have not experienced a hail storm in years. It is amazing and scarey at the same time. They can do a lot of damage too. We are still hot and dry.

    BTW, I did buy “The Politician” by Andrew Young. Like you said, if only half is true.

  7. I’ve experienced a lot of hail in my life, but we, too, here in Northern Vermont, recently had a storm that produced the largest hail I’ve ever (directly) experienced. I think the end of the world must be near.

  8. Wish we could get some rain here! My grass is turning brown!
