What the hail?

21 04 2008

This is my backyard. I live in North Carolina for Pete’s sake! Along with thunder that rattled the windows and lightening to rival anything the paparazzi could offer, we experienced some pea size hail. The rain and hail were coming so hard that our yard was swamped. I could barely make out the hail stones as they were coming down. When they hit the lawn, they bounced up and the scene resembled pop corn being cooked on our grass.

It turns out that our little black mystery dog is not fond of thunder. She became my Siamese twin for about an hour. Awww. My grand Dame, our white dog, could not have cared any less about all the noise and excitement. She is cool as a cucumber. Or, it could be that she is just too darn old to be excited by much.

Well, at least I was pretty impressed.

I wonder if it hailed at my house? I was sound asleep I’m sure!
