I’m joining Cate this morning for SWS.
My six words for today are: We had a hailstorm last night!
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!
